Abstract:

September 1944: the allies launch the largest airborne offensive in history, delivering 36,000 troops by parachute and glider to the Dutch/German Border. In 9 days time, half of them will be casualties of war. Among their number is Theo Trickey, a young paratrooper so dreadfully injured he is not expected to survive. Under the care of Medical Officer Captain Daniel Garland, Trickey is shipped to Germany as a Prisoner of War. As Garland slowly nurses him back to health, he discovers that there's something unusual about Trickey, starting with a chance meeting Trickey had with Erwin Rommel before the War.
