May 1940. Sergeant Jack Tanner has been posted to a training company on the south-east coast of England. But all is not well in the camp. As the Germans launch their Blitzkrieg in Europe, Tanner and the entire company are thrust into the thick of the action and find that they must find their way back to Allied lines. Soon enmeshed in the long withdrawal to the French coast, Tanner, Sykes and their new platoon commander, find themselves pitted against the great panzer commander himself, General Rommel.

James Holland is a member of the British Commission for Military History and the Guild of Battlefield Guides. His many interviews with veterans of the Second World War are available at the Imperial War Museum.

Review:

"Holland is a superb historian who knows his stuff, and his descriptions of the action are terrific."
--Daily Telegraph

"Old-fashioned, testosterone-fuelled escapism and Tanner is a chiselled protagonist straight out of the pages of the old Commando comics.... Destined to be a series that will run and run."
--Mail on Sunday
