Summary
Desperate to escape the Eastern front, Peter Faber, an ordinary German soldier, marries Katharina, a woman he has never met; it is a marriage of convenience that promises "honeymoon" leave for him and a pension for her should he die on the front. With 10 days' leave secured, Peter visits his new wife in Berlin, and both are surprised by the attraction that develops between them. Peter returns to the horror of the front. Back in Berlin, Katharina, goaded on by her desperate and delusional parents, ruthlessly works her way into the Nazi party hierarchy
