Description

More Death or Glory adventure as Tom Caine is captured by Nazis. Italy, 1943 - SAS Captain Tom Caine is being held captive by Nazis forces. While imprisoned he befriends another member of the SAS - one who has heard a rumour. The operative knows the location of an ancient codex. A codex he claims will lead them to the location of the original texts of Tacitus's Germania. Caine is deployed by the Nazis to find the codex and retrieve the texts on a mission that will most certainly bring about his death, and refusal is not an option. Caine has little choice but to begin his most deadly campaign yet. The Death or Glory series is perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell and Andy McNab - Michael Asher combines seamless historical accuracy with the pace and action of a modern SAS thriller.

Asher has brought the critical eye of the knowledgeable insider to his in-depth study of SAS operations and personalities' Herald Michael Asher has served in the Parachute Regiment and the SAS.
