A new and terrible secret weapon has been diverted to Gabès Harbor via ship by the Nazi intelligence agency in Tunis, the SD, a branch of the SS. Standartenführer Heinrich Hardtz has a sobering task ahead of him—safely deliver a convoy of Germany's latest weaponry to General von Arnim's 5th Army perched atop the Western Dorsals, a tortuous and craggy mountain range in central Tunisia. Hardtz has enlisted the aid of Panzer-commander Hauptmann Wolff for this task, a gritty, battle weary man on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Wolff will also have access to a new weapon as well, to aid him in this task—the sixty-ton Tiger-I battle tank—a mammoth-sized, heavily armored war machine of incredible strength and firepower. The SAS must find this secret weapon and destroy it before it can be used against the U.S. Forces encamped on the front lines in Tunisia. British Major Edward Drake and his small handpicked commando team must infiltrate and blow up a German radar station at Mareth, Rommel's desert fortress. The radar station must be knocked out before the DAF launches an airstrike against the harbor, hoping to sink the cargo ships before they can unload their unholy cargo. But things go terribly awry. A fouled up submarine rendezvous leads to near disaster. Along the way, Drake's commandos inadvertently pick up downed Air Corps fighter pilot, Captain Robert E. Lee, a feisty, wise-cracking Southerner from Mississippi. Captain Lee is in for an unexpected wild ride and the adventure of a lifetime!

About the Author:

DEKE D. WAGNER was born in Mississippi and raised in Georgia. The son of a retired U.S. Air Force sergeant and German mother from Hesse-Darmstadt, Deke grew up having a keen interest in military history and his German heritage. At the tender age of ten, he read Baron von Richthofen’s autobiography, Der Rote Kampfflieger (The Red Air Fighter), and has ever since, been enthralled with tales of air aces and air combat. After high school and a stint in the U.S. Army Reserve, Deke attended art school but made little progress. He spent the next two decades tirelessly pursuing a semi-professional musical career as a singer/songwriter/guitarist before attempting his first novel, The Eagle and the Albatros. Deke also enjoys playing guitar and recording original music. He currently resides in Augusta, Georgia. Mission to Mareth is his third novel.
