The Fuehrer’s Blood is by Shreyans Zaveri and contains an imaginative perspective on World War II. It brings to light a lot of tantalizing “what ifs?” What if there were people inside the Nazi party fighting against Hitler and were trying to bring him down? What if Hitler kept a personal diary?

In The Fuehrer’s Blood, readers follow a sniper named Han. He is also called “The Shadow”, and he is Hitler’s henchman. He gets captured and finds himself sudden jeopardy
This excerpt introduces us to Han The Shadow:
Han was perched precariously on the top most branch of a tall swaying tree. Like an outgrowth from the tree, he sat still and steady. One hand held out his sniper rifle while the supporting arm showed him his watch. Loud thunder claps in distant mountains sent aftershocks across the angry skies. Han’s gaze shifted from his timepiece to the skies as he observed momentary lightning streaks pulse through the clouds. They lit up the trees and dark eerie forest at intervals. The light breeze that touched his face was damp with rain as thunder rumbled far above. Yet again he glanced at his timepiece. The glint in his eye was the only giveaway for he never moved a muscle otherwise.
Readers also meet Theodor Bachmeier in The Fuehrer’s Blood, a Nazi soldier on the run. Bachmeier must save his lover, however, and travels to Berlin to do so. He gets involved with a nefarious faction known as the “Blood Moon”. This group is on a mission to rescue Han. The plot twists and turns, and suddenly Bachmeier is not only trying to save Han, but also on a quest to find Hitler, and change the course of history.
