The Mediterranean, 1943: At long last the British Army has won a victory, and Rommel's Afrika Korps is in retreat. Into this new phase of the war comes Captain Mike Blackwood, Royal Marine Commando. Already bloodied in the disastrous retreat from Burma, Blackwood goes to Alexandria as part of an elite unit, poised to strike the first blows against the Nazi fortress of mainland Europe.
