What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

Crete, May 1941.

In the face of a German invasion, Sergeant Jack Tanner is embroiled in a deadly game of survival that will test his resolve more than ever before. Not only has he fallen out with his commander but he has mortally offended Alopex, a powerful local chieftain.

As if that wasn’t enough, Tanner and the rest of his battalion are caught in vicious close-quarter fighting against crack German paratroopers. Before long, they find themselves in bitter retreat to the mountainous interior where only one man can help them – Alopex. Although whether he will come to their rescue or not remains to be seen…

Critics Review

  • Plenty of action… sharp dialogue and swift characterisation. The whole is intelligently structured so that this is absorbing and thoughtful as well as tense and exciting

    Daily Telegraph
  • A good old-fashined action hero makes his appearance in this page-turning thriller… James Holland, a respected military historian, has produced a story authentic in every detail
