Robert Stermscheg

Born in Europe in 1956, Robert Stermscheg was exposed to many wonderful writers, among them Edgar Rice Burroughs, Alexandre Dumas, even Karl May. The element Robert appreciated most about their writing was how their portrayal of life opened up his imagination to vivid new worlds. Due to frequent moves necessitated by his father’s career—Stermscheg the elder was an electrical engineer— Robert became an avid reader. To soften the blow of the moves— and broaden his son’s education and imagination— Stermscheg supplied his son with a steady supply of books, principal among them Karl May novels.

Stealth by Robert Stermscheg book cover


1944. American bomber pilot, Jack Swaggart, has led his squadron countless times into hostile German territory, hit the assigned target, and returned to base none the worse for wear. Eventually, Jack’s luck runs out. With his B 26 Marauder heavily damaged by flak, Jack is forced to ditch his crippled airplane in the German countryside.  Separated from his crew, Jack trusts an unlikely ally, Hilde Augsberg, a plucky young woman, a decision which catapults them into an adventure neither could have envisioned. Coincidentally, they spot a new type of German warplane in flight – a design unlike anything they’ve ever seen before. In that moment, Jack realizes that the Nazis have developed a formidable new bomber. In the blink of an eye, Jack’s mission shifts from survival to thwarting the Germans just when the Allies are on the verge of triumph.
