The Train Was on Time (European Classics)

Heinrich Böll


Heinrich Böll’s taut and haunting first novel tells the tale of twenty-four-year-old deepest Andreas as he trips on a troop educate around the German nation-state to the jap entrance. Trapped, he is aware that Hitler has already misplaced the battle ... but he's by surprise galvanized through the idea that he's with a purpose to his death.
 
because the educate hurtles on, he riffs via prayers and stories, talks with different squaddies approximately what they’ve been via, and gazes desperately out the window at his nation racing away. With mounting suspense, Andreas is gripped by way of one suggestion over all: Is there the way to defy his destiny?
