Operation Cannibal takes Lynch and the other Commandos to North Africa, where they take on Egyptian spies, German Brandenburgers, and a unit of crack Italian Bersaglieri. There's lots of desert adventure, battles with armored cars and some heavy weapons, as well as gunfights with rifles, submachine guns, knives, grenades...you know - the usual stuff!
Writing this book was a lot of fun, especially as it gave me a chance to delve more into the history and details surrounding the early North African campaign battles. It's amazing how much the war changed between 1941 and 1945, and so much is different than the later Italian and French/German campaigns.
Here's the product description from the Amazon page:
The sands of the North African desert run red with blood as the British Eighth Army battles against the German Afrika Korps. While preparing for a major offensive, the British learn of an enemy raiding unit operating in the deep desert, attacking supply convoys and endangering vital reconnaissance patrols.
Corporal Lynch and his companions find themselves part of a strike force of Commandos and men from the Long Range Desert Group. Their mission: drive deep into the Libyan desert, find the enemy raiders, and wipe them out in a storm of lead.
But when the Commandos discover a nest of Egyptian spies with ties to German Intelligence, has their mission been compromised before it even begins? Will the Commandos find the enemy raiders, or will the hunters become the hunted?
The desert is as dangerous as any enemy in this, the third book in the COMMANDO series of military action-adventure novels written in the spirit of classic war movies and wartime adventure pulp fiction.I'll make another announcement when the paperback format is available.
