The Katyn Order

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The German war machine is in retreat as the Russians advance. In Warsaw, Resistance fighters rise up against their Nazi occupiers, but the Germans retaliate, ruthlessly leveling the once-beautiful city. American Adam Nowak has been dropped into Poland by British intelligence as an assassin and Resistance fighter. During the Warsaw Uprising he meets Natalia, a covert operative who has lost everything—just as he has. Amid the Allied power struggle left by Germany’s defeat, Adam and Natalia join in a desperate hunt for the 1940 Soviet order authorizing the murders of 20,000 Polish army officers and civilians. If they can find the Katyn Order before the Russians do, they just might change the fate of Poland.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 14, 2011 – Jacobson follows his debut, Night of Flames, with another solid WWII thriller. In late 1944, American Adam Nowak, a deadly sniper/assassin known as Wolf, is fighting alongside the remnants of the Polish army, the Armia Krajowa, as they seek to defeat the retreating Nazi army. Nowak must find a document, the Katyn order, which will prove that Russians at the highest level ordered the massacre of 20,000 Polish officers in 1940, primarily in the Katyn Forest. This document will be used to prevent the Soviets from taking over Poland when the three Allied leaders, Churchill, Stalin, and Roosevelt, meet in Potsdam to divide up postwar Europe. The author makes the bloody fight for Warsaw both exciting and suspenseful. While the search for the document drives the action, it's the saga of the brave men and women of the Armia Krajowa who must first battle the Germans and then the Russians that's the heart of the story.
