Sgt. Tom Dunn returns in his fourth book! Dunn and his British counterpart, Sgt. Malcolm Saunders, and their squads of lethal U.S. Army Rangers and British Commandos must secure the only armor-bearing bridge in Chartres, just fifty miles from Paris. George S. Patton’s Third Army is rushing across France and it must have the bridge to keep pressure on the retreating German army.
Adolf Hitler, still reeling from the defeats and turmoil in France, sends General Dietrich von Choltitz, the Butcher of Sevastopol, already known for his brutality, to Paris as the new governor. It’s obvious even to Hitler that the liberation of Paris is imminent so the Nazi Führer orders the general to execute an unthinkable act.
Back in England, a Bletchley Park analyst reads decrypted German Enigma messages and uncovers a terrifying Nazi threat against Paris. He works desperately to unravel the details and contacts an old friend working at 10 Downing Street for help. As information becomes clear piece by piece, there is only one choice: call on Dunn and Saunders, and their squads.
Dunn and Saunders must fight the odds as the fate of Paris and perhaps all of Western Europe rests in their courageous hands.
