9780812561692: Victory: On the Attack

Ralph Peters follows a German officer in the starving days after World War II as he makes his way on foot back home, where a defeat far more terrible than the Allied victory awaits him.

Jim DeFelice takes us to the height of the war when information was bought dearly on both sides. When an American pilot parachutes into Germany to gather information, he lands right in the middle of the viper's nest---a place deadlier than anything he could have found in the skies above.

James Cobb sends a special detail of PBY Catalina flying boats hunting for a hidden enemy radar station that provides the Japanese Navy with an edge in the War in the Pacific.

Dean Ing takes us into the world of espionage as the Army Air Force becomes convinced that a Nazi superweapon can reach New York and Washington. As an interceptor is rush-developed, a plane-crazy young Texan begins to suspect that someone on the team has an agenda all his own . . .

His latest novel is America. He is also the editor of two anthologies, War in the Air and The New York Times bestselling Combat. He resides with his wife, Deborah, in Nevada.

From AudioFile:

This series of WWII novellas continues. BREAKTHROUGH ON BLOODY RIDGE details a battle on Guadalcanal from both American and Japanese points of view. It seems designed to please strategy aficionados, for there is little human interest. Instead, we hear the thinking of the leaders in charge of the troop movements and minute details about fighting and weaponry. The story is narrated with practically no inflection. In contrast, THE EAGLE AND THE CROSS, about an American pilot involved in the Battle of Stalingrad, is a suspense-packed thriller in the soldier-of-fortune vein, read with attention to its drama. Both narrators sound battle-hardened and masculine, but neither is particularly distinguished. Y.R. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
