Abstract:

The days of the Third Reich are numbered, but on an isolated outpost in the English Channel, the German Army has vowed a fight to the death. Under their brilliant, ruthless SS commander, the Nazi invaders have turned this peaceful island into an impregnable fortress. The mission of Owen Morgan, British soldier of fortune, spy and a daredevil, is to lead a ruffian band of commandos onto the island in a bold move to destroy the enemy-and almost certainly themselves as well.
