Autumn,1942: Hitler's legions have swept across Europe. Soviet Russia reels under the German onslaught while across the channel, Britain struggles on. And in North Africa, Field Marshall Erwin Rommel and his Afrika Korps have routed the 8th Army, threatening the oil fields of the Middle East. The war hangs in the balance...Out of this, the British hatch a desperate plan - to send a small, highly mobile fighting force behind enemy lines to strike a blow that will stop Rommel's army in its tracks. It is to be called the Long Range Desert Group and its exploits will become the stuff of legend. Based on real events, Steven Pressfield's bold new novel brings to pulse-racing life the ingenuity and daring of this maverick commando unit - a disparate, dedicated 'band of brothers' who sacrificed so much for the sake of freedom...

I have read for enjoyment every single night for as long as I can remember. I am 58-years-old. I have read the classics as well as current fiction and non-fiction. I 'discovered' Steven Pressfield in 1998 with "Gates of Fire." Ten years later, I say with conviction that Mr. Pressfield is the master of historical fiction. That is saying a lot with the number of talented and critically acclaimed writers who offer us their work in this genre. I almost hate to admit it, but "Killing Rommel" is better than "Gates of Fire" and firmly establishes Mr. Pressfield at the top of the class. "Killing Rommel" is a fast-paced, page-turning adventure of the Long Range Desert Group LRDG and its mission to cut off the head of the snake, to kill Field Marshall Erwin Rommel the genius behind the German success in North Africa during WWII. You will not find a better tale of heroism during this critical engagement upon which the outcome of WWII potentially revolved. The characters are ordinary men who volunteer for extraordinary duty and rise to the challenge. You will not forget them, nor will you forget the LRDG. This is the stuff that legends are born from. Steven Pressfield has scored another triumph. Your time will be well spent with "Killing Rommel." If you are a Pressfield fan, you'll love this; if you are new to the Pressfield 'histories,' this will hook you and encourage you to read them all.
