Synopsis

Max by Sarah Cohen-Scali

A compelling and chilling read about a young boy's ambition to become a model soldier in Nazi Germany. Baby Max is the perfect prototype of the Nazi eugenics programme; he is the ideal size, he has the correct colour hair and flawless blue eyes. Raised in an ideology driven by hatred and ruled by fear, Max is taught to endure pain and be brave at all costs. But as he is drawn further into the horror of war, Max must fight to untangle the truth from the lie.

Reviews

The narrator here is already a committed Nazi in the womb

despite Max's flaws, you come to empathise with him as an abused and exploited child, who learns how to separate lies from truth against the odds. * Amnesty.org.uk *
