Do the Dead Men Dream? is a harrowing, in fact quite horrifying, novel about the Second World War, which takes the reader into the darkest realms of the human psyche that only war can awaken. We can pretend, we can hide behind ideals, but all that war represents is destruction and death. There are no heroes in war, only the lucky ones who manage to survive.
The book takes the reader through the battlefields of the Russian front, while at the same time describing the events in Slovenia, which were no less bloody than those in other theatres of the world. The author does not take sides, because the idea of the novel is to show the brutal absurdity, even stupidity, of war, not to support one ideal or another.
