Review Text

Here's a rough action novel that never quits. . . just like its commandos first met undergoing the kind of inhuman training that has left three dead and twenty-two wounded. They are led by an inexhaustively demanding man only referred to as the Major who is grooming them for a particularly woolly mission. They are to be dropped into France to blow up and burglarize the Germans' Signals Data Storage Center which is buried under three feet of concrete. From the word Go there's one crisis after another including a last second betrayal by two convicts who had joined the unit to buy their freedom. It's as solid as the tracer bullets lining every page.
