A high action World War II thriller introducing a mesmerizing new hero and action as real as it gets, from an author who used to work in covert operations.

As Hitler's armies march into Europe, Eddie Dawson, an explosives expert and somewhat reluctant Lance-Corporal in the Royal Engineers, is sent to France on an assessment mission that seems straightforward enough.

His task completed, he anticipates an early return to Britain, but instead he's sent to the Saarland region, where the French have launched an ill-advised invasion into German territory.

Dawson's demolition skills are needed to clear a way through a minefield. Within hours everything goes wrong and Dawson and a fellow sapper are caught on the wrong side of the front line.

Their obvious escape route blocked, they head north, but their troubles have only just begun.
