Bravery and close combat in the fight against Hitler.
Eddie Dawson and Major Sykes are sent to the impregnable Eben Emael in Belgium, the strongest fort in the world. Once there, they witness a group of German soldiers landing on the roof in gliders. This main attack lasts 20 minutes, leaving Eben Emael crippled.
But Dawson is disturbed – he has seen the Germans do the impossible: blasting holes through solid 12 inch steel armour using some kind of new demolition charge.
This secret weapon could change everything. They simply must get one. But how? And can they make it through enemy lines, out all the way to Dunkirk and to safety?
The second explosive tale of Eddie Dawson’s derring-do in the Second World War, perfect for fans of Iain Gale and Alistair MacLean.
