Book Description

October 2010

On the eve of D-Day, a British secret agent with unique powers goes behind Nazi lines.

Michael Gallatin is a British spy with a peculiar talent: the ability to transform himself into a wolf. Although his work in North Africa helped the Allies win the continent in the early days of World War II, he quit the service when a German spy shot his lover in her bed. Now, three years later, the army asks him to end his retirement and parachute into occupied Paris. A mysterious German plan called the Iron Fist threatens the D-Day invasion, and the Nazi in charge is the spy who betrayed Michael’s lover. The werewolf goes to France for king and country, hoping for a chance at bloody vengeance.

5.0 out of 5 stars High adventure set in nazi Germany Jan. 13 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In the minds of many horror novel fans, Robert McCammon was the 80´¿s best genre writer not named Stephen King. The late 80´¿s and early 90´¿s were particularly impressive as he released a trio of amazing novels such as Swan Song, Stinger and The Wolf´¿s Hour. Mccammon has never written a sequel to one of his novels but if you ask most of his fans they would tell you that The Wolf´¿s Hour is the most likely to have one since the story ends before the end of the second world war therefore leaving Michael Gallatin with many other potential missions. Of course, McCammon has been retired from publishing for upwards of ten years(Speaks the Nightbird is not a comeback novel as it was written several years ago but only published recently) so it doesn´¿t look like there will ever be a sequel to The Wolf´¿s Hour which is sad news for anyone who enjoyed this novel as much as I did.
Michael Gallatin is a transplanted Russian who's a top agent for Britain during WWII. In 1942, he overtook Rommel in North Africa and foiled the Nazis´¿ plan to control the Suez Canal, a vital waterway that would ensure that Nazi Germany could choke off Allied shipping and continue their march east into the underbelly of Russia. Fast forward to 1944: the war still rages on and the Nazis are being forced toward Berlin by a vengeful Soviet tide but Western Europe is still in Hitler´¿s grip.
Gallatin, in seclusion since 1942, is called back for a vital mission: The first part of the mission has him being parachuted into Nazi-occupied France to retrieve vital information from an informant in Paris who is under tight security from the Gestapo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brings out the WOLF in you!!! July 21 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Very entertaining indeed! This is a must read novel!
Robert McCammon takes you on a journey that you will never forget. The novel unveils two time periods. The period of Michael Gallatin's past who as young boy is saved by a pack of wolves that end up taking him in as one of their own. These wolves however are different because they can take on human form as well. The second period is of the present, which is basically the story about Michael Gallatin as an English spy during WWII. The fun part begins when he is parachuted in a small French town occupied by Germans. His mission is to unfold the mystery behind the meaning of "Iron Fist."
"The Wolf's Hour" is full of adventure, love, and suffering. Throughout the pages the reader learns that Michael also has a battle that takes place within himself. One of the things I've learned by reading this novel is that like Michael Gallatin, we too have a greater purpose.
My favorite quote from this book is: "All freedom has its price, but freedom of the mind is priceless."

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping entertainment! June 20 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Robert R. McCammon's best-selling novel follows Michael Gallatin, British spy and werewolf, on a mission to Nazi Germany to foil a plot against the Allies. While the premise sounds like an episode of The Twilight Zone, in reality The Wolf's Hour is a fast-paced action and horror story that breaks the traditional werewolf rules. Silver is no longer like wolf-kryptonite, and Michael Gallatin may change into a wolf at will, making his ability more of a blessing than a curse. The Wolf's Hour switches between a war story and Gallatin's adolescence as a young werewolf in uncharted Russian outlands. As beast and man, Gallatin experiences the eternal struggles of the human condition: love and hate, pleasure and pain, salvation and damnation, peace and war. McCammon has created a hero stuck between angels, demons, and his will to "Live Free" (31). Gallatin's story is sometimes tragic, others triumphant, and always violent. McCammon's smooth flowing prose is both vivid and gripping-sharpened with a gritty edge of realism. The descriptions and dialogue are so well written, the reader feels right there. There is a power to The Wolf's Hour that is unforgiving but extremely satisfying. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Unique Book! June 15 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was one of the most unique and original books that I have recently read.The hero and star of this novel is Michael Gallatin
He is a British master spy and a werewolf.He first sees action in Egypt against the forces of Rommel. He retires and is called back into action by the British spy agency.He is parachuted into Nazi occupied France to uncover a Nazi master plan designed to stop D-Day. In France he encounters several characters.He encounters Chesna Van Dorne a German film actress who is actually an English spy who aids Gallatin in his mission.He has to battle Harry Sandler, an American big game hunter who Gallatin
has a score to settle with.Another Nazi villain that Gallatin does battle with is Colonel Jerek Blok.He is the mastermind behind the plot to stop D-Day.
Another interesting part of this book is Gallatin's youth in the Russian forests at the White Palace.This is where he is turned into a werewolf and spent his youth.His youth as a werewolf is quite interesting.
This is an excellent book that makes for very interesting reading.The werewolf superspy is for real.Buy this book.
