A Great Soldier in the Last Great War
December 16, 1944: The Nazis launch a colossal surprise attack through the Ardennes Forest. If they take the port of Antwerp, they will crush the Allied advance from the west and save the Third Reich from the fate it deserves. Opposing the massive German force of half a million soldiers and several thousand tanks are the armies of America and its allies. The terrible hatred between the Americans and Germans is unleashed as the bloodiest battle of all time begins.
Sergeant Jonathan Brooks has been fighting the Germans since D-Day. He and the Seventh Rangers were plunged into virtually every major battle on the Western Front. They suffered heavy losses in the past few months, but the showdown in the Ardennes will be the most brutal fighting the Rangers have ever seen.
As the Germans push the Allies back, they capture several Belgian cities. One of the cities, Spartiate, contains a secret weapon. If the Nazis utilize it, they will win the war. The Rangers are assigned to reach the 'package' and secure it from the enemy. As Jonathan Brooks engages the Germans, he must not only defeat the Nazis and seize the package, but also conquer the evil within himself. Nothing he has done before could prepare Brooks for the bloody horror of the Battle of the Bulge.
"Great plot, well researched, an engrossing story, a well worked out version of the secrets of the war."
