In 1943, the Nazi war machine had yet to be blunted. In the midst of war-torn Europe, in the central mountains of Yugoslavia, three friends band together to fight against German invaders. But when Partisan regulars prove to be a threat as well, the friends must question their resolve in the face of a new menace from within their own ranks.
Once settled on flight, the three embark on a journey to save themselves while the Nazi stranglehold tightens on their ever-diminishing homeland.
At the same time, on the fells of southern England, another warrior readies for battle. Reluctant to echo the misery his family has felt on others, Ian Langford knows he must carry the war to the heart of the enemy in order to end it. When his mission carries him over the spring fields of Yugoslavia, he must reassess exactly what he is fighting for, and decide if his actions are to be those of a hero, or just those of a killer.
Balkan Spring is a tale of ordinary men and women caught up in extraordinary times. Sometimes they rise to the occasion, but other times falter and give in to lower natures, only to rise again with the absolution that only courage can bring.
This is a tale of our better selves.
