The electrifying story of an
Adventist family who dared to practice
their faith in Hitler’s Germany

They saw God work miracle after miracle to save them from certain disaster. As thousands around them fell victim to the horrors of war, they were borne up on angels’ wings—sometimes quite literally. This is the true story of one family who chose to be faithful whatever the cost, and found refuge in the shadow of the Almighty.

From the Back Cover . . .

The lieutenant’s face turned beet-red. "You must be mad, private!" he bellowed. "This is the German Army! This battalion’s going to war, and you want Saturday off?" Under his breath he spat out, "It’s just my luck to be saddled with a religious nut!"

Franz Hasel, a 40-year-old pacifist, was drafted and assigned to Pioneer Company 699, Hitler’s elite troops who built bridges at the front lines. His religious scruples did not endear him to his superiors. Sarcastically dubbed "carrot eater" and "Bible reader, " he finally gained the respect of his unit.

Just before he was sent deep into Russia—where all but seven of his 1,200-man unit would die— he secretly discarded his gun, fearing that, as the company sharpshooter, he might be tempted to kill. In Russia he faced a new problem: how to warn the local Jews before the SS got to them.

Meanwhile, back at home, Franz’s wife, Helene, and their four children were fighting their own battles. Pressured to join the Nazi Party, she announced, "I belong to the party of Jesus Christ."

"Tomorrow night your children will be taken from you unless you join the party," Herr Doering screamed. And she had another secret. One day the Gestapo knocked on her door. "Are you hiding a Jew" they demanded. Their chances of survival? Dim. Their only ally? God.

In a few short years they lived several lifetimes of danger. As thousands around them fell victim to the horrors of war, they were borne up on angels’ wings—sometimes quite literally. This is the true, soul-soaring story of one desperate family who chose to be faithful whatever the cost, and found refuge in the shadow of the Almighty.

A must-read for every Christian. You will not regret.

If you are a Christian you HAVE to read this book.
Okay, lets imagine you have problems. No, I mean REAL problems. You're Christian, good.. But let's say you're a Christian in Germany at the beginning of WWII. HITLER's Germany!. Not too bad?? Well, how about if you are one of the first to get drafted into HITLER'S ARMY?? Not bad enough?? How about if your request to be a conciencious objector is DENIED. Bad enough yet? How about facing persecution for your beliefs? Most of us in Modern America can't understand what that is. But Franz Hazel knew well. Forced to be a soldier in the front lines of Hitler's army, he vowed to stay true to his beliefs and his God. What would you do if Hitler told you that you had to fight for him and his ambitions that you believe are evil, but your God says "Thou shalt not kill" What WOULD you do? How much would you risk to avoid going against your concience? Would you risk yourlife? Franz Hazel did when he threw away his gun so he wouldn't be tempted to kill in the heat of battle. And again when he went ahead of the Gestapo, warning the Jews of what was comming. He risked everything to stay faithfull to his God. But the awesome thing?? The more faithfull he was to his God, the more faithfull God was to him, protecting him, unarmed in the front lines of battle, and his family back at home as they face starvation and social persecution. This book will uplift your spirits and give you a greater faith in God. A book that you won't be able to put down once you pick it up, it is as exciting as any action flick while being 100% true. After reading this book, you'll understand what it really means to be a Christian. To risk it all and trust completely in God. Not to be missed!!
