About the Author
Steven Hartov is an Airborne veteran and the author of international thrillers, including The Heat of Ramadan and The Nylon Hand of God.
"A classic WWII raid story in the behind-the-lines tradition of The Guns of Navarone, Steven Hartov's The Last of the Seven ticks like a detonator and explodes like a bomb. I read it [in] one rush and the book didn't lose momentum the whole way. Hartov himself is the real deal, a veteran of IDF Intelligence and a paratrooper (currently a reserve major in the US Army). He delivers his tale with such vivid and authentic detail that you come away believing you too can speak Hochdeutsch, Yiddish, and Hebrew as you take on Hitler's atomic labs deep in the heart of the Third Reich." --Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of Gates of Fire and A Man at Arms

"An immensely readable, addictive, tense, and dramatic World War II adventure. Steven Hartov's descriptive skills draw the reader in from the very beginning and his fluent writing style keeps you turning the pages. Hugely enjoyable." --Dominic Piper, author of Kiss Me When I'm Dead, part of the PI Daniel Beckett series

"The Last of the Seven is a beautifully told war story, written with stirring prose and painstakingly accurate detail. Hartov shares a little known but compelling slice of Second World War history where German Jewish escapees were employed behind enemy lines in British commando operations that carried extreme risk and high stakes. The plot is a nail-biter. The dialogue crackles. The characters are memorable. And the exotic settings are laid out with such historical precision that you'll feel as if you are on the ground watching the horror, the sacrifice, the bravery, and the romance unfold in front of your eyes. Another absolute winner from Hartov." --Daniel Kalla, bestselling author of The Far Side of the Sky and The Darkness in the Light

"A fact-inspired novel about a German Jewish soldier fighting for the British as a member of two secret, all-Jewish commando units disguised as Nazis. ... Hartov is at his best capturing the torturous physical tests his protagonist is put to. The desert scenes scorch the imagination; the bombing of a transport ship is horrific. ... A little-known story enjoyably told."--Kirkus Reviews

"A gripping look back at WWII through the eyes of a war-torn unit of European Jews who are sent behind enemy lines to strike back at Hitler, Steven Hartov's The Last of Seven, opens fast and never lets up for a second. Impossible to put down, fans of Robert Harris and Andrew Gross will want to get their hands on this one the second it hits bookstores." --Ryan Steck, The Real Book Spy, and author of Fields of Fire

"The Last of the Seven is a story that is as beautifully crafted as it is tragic and brutal. Steven Hartov moves beyond an impeccably researched recounting of historical events, tapping into the vivid memories and raw emotions of one who lost everything under the Nazi reign of terror. It is deeply personal and highly compelling--a memorable novel of survival and revenge during the tumultuous era of World War II." - Taylor Moore, author of Down Range

"A little-known story enjoyably told."-Kirkus Reviews

"[A] beautifully written historical novel ... this story does not disappoint."--The Times of Israel
