Few readers today are familiar with the conditions the Saints in West Germany and Austria faced during World War II. They did not have ready access to the many conveniences American Saints took for granted including local Church leaders, clean places to meet, or even reliable cars. The closest temple was across the Atlantic Ocean. Hundreds of German Saints served in the German military, while thousands more stayed home and endeavored to keep their families and the Church alive. Their stories of joy and suffering are presented against the background of the rise and fall of the Third Reich. Readers will be touched at the faith and dedication shown by these Saints young and old, military and civilian.
