The Armed SS battles the British Army: desert warfare in Iraq and Syria. The year is 1941, and Adolf Hitler has a grand plan to link up with the Imperial Japanese Army in the Middle East. To do it, he needs a crack troop of the German Army's finest soldiers: SS Assault Regiment Wotan, led by the dastardly Geier and 1st Company CO von Dodenburg. Iraq is the battleground, and ousting the entrenched British Army at RAF Habbaniyah is the objective, but can Wotan even get there without disaster striking?
This book is part of the SS Wotan Series of novels, written by the prolific author Leo Kessler. It can be read on its own as a stand-alone WW2 fiction novel, or as part of the larger series spanning the entire Second World War. Leo Kessler is pseudonym for writer and historian Charles Whiting. If you've read Eric Meyer or Sven Hassel, you're bound to enjoy these books.
