Graham Masterton – The Devils Of D-Day (Sphere, 1979)

In an attempt to uncover the truth behind the devastating mayhem wrecked by 13 black tanks erupting through enemy lines in 1944, one man sets out for Normandy – and unwittingly releases an age-old horror on modern-day civilisation.

A novel full of the author’s favourite things: demons, angels, myths, history and Nazis. Considering its length (180 pages) it’s surprisingly gripping and well written. The final confrontation between good and evil is a stunner.

A demon was conjured up and with hellish skill enmeshed them in its devilish intrigues.

It offered them a pact that would grant them superhuman powers … but the price was high: the demon wanted their souls.
