            Durant la seconde guerre mondiale, en Alsace... [...] La casemate francaise de Mandelott est assise sur un ilot de quarante-deux ares, entre deux bras du Rhin, comme si elle n'avait pas encore choisi son camp. Ses occupants, des gens du coin de-venus soldats de fortune, ont ete p...ris en tenaille par une crue estivale helvetique, qui a fait grossir la largeur du fleuve de plusieurs kilometres. Au cours d'une ronde sur cet ilot de pierre rouge, un des soldats voit une barque, retenue par une amarre enchevetree dans les roseaux et la rocaille. Un homme mort git a l'interieur. Il porte un uniforme allemand. Tandis que le cadavre est jete par les huit sol-dats alsaciens dans les eaux du Rhin, un doute plane. N'y avait-il qu'un corps sans vie dans la barque ? Ou bien doit-on compter un homme de plus sur l'ilot ? Quand un des soldats est sauvagement assas-sine dans la casemate, le doute fait place a la cer-titude. Mais l'Histoire n'est pas encore ecrite, la France n'a pas encore gagne la guerre, et l'Alsace, objet de toutes les convoitises, ne peut compter que sur le courage d'hommes libres pour etre sauvee... [...] Ce roman est ne de mon desir d'illustrer la bravoure de quelques Alsaciens, pris au piege dans une fiction originale mais realiste, creee avec tout le respect que je dois a ma terre natale.
