The occupied Channel Islands: the last outpost of German resistance at the end of a long and savage conflict. Most feared amongst them: St Pierre, the heavily guarded fortress chosen by a crazed SS Commandant for his suicidal final stand.

With Berlin on the verge of capture, it is the most sensitive mission of the war.

An end game that calls for a hero – with something else besides. A game for a battle-hardened veteran ready to lay down his life for his birthplace. And for the woman he left behind…

“Jack Higgins is the master craftsman of good, clean adventure…in the footsteps of Sapper and the great John Buchan” – Daily Mail

    " A library audio book that kept me awake while traveling cross country. It almost didn't do the job--the book was pretty slow to start and the guy who did the recording was hard to understand at first. But once the story got going I enjoyed the action and the WWII history lesson. "

    " Very Good; Channel Island held by Germans in the last days of the war becomes the target of a group of commandos; they are captured and work together with some of the Germans towards common goals. "

    " I really like war books and this is another that I can say is on the good shelf. There is a lot of drama and action in this so I recommend it. "

    " The days of the Third Reich are numbered, but on an isolated island in the English Channel, a brilliant, ruthless SS commander has vowed a fight to the death. It is up to Owen Morgan, British soldier, spy, and daredevil, to lead a band of commandos to destroy the Nazi invaders--or die trying. "
