Set against the backdrop of Britain in 1942, this brand new WWII novel follows two US Marines as they undergo the brutal British Commando training regime in the Scottish Highlands. Penned by a veteran marine, this novel is written in vivid detail; it has received glowing praise from the military community as “exciting and riveting” (MGen Ted Hopgood) and “a spell-binder that will transport the reader in the time and place” (Fred H. Allison, Maj USMC, PhD).
