Overview

The war in Vietnam is over. Yet the descendants of those who fought there are pulled into a new war. A war in a country whose name has come to mean unending conflict, unending brutality, and unending killing. Afghanistan. Into this tortured land flies the civilian pilot Max Hoffman. Out of luck and out of money, he is easy prey to the CIA who recruit him to join their hidden war. Hoffman soon discovers the American intelligence officers have a hidden agenda – personal gain and profit at any cost. And they have no qualms about who gets sacrificed in pursuit of their ruthless aims.

Yet they discover that Hoffman is no pushover. His ancestor was the leader of the famed Vietnam fighters, the Devil’s Guard. And Max discovers he too has a talent for warfare that makes him every bit as devious and deadly as the enemy. Hoffman discovers he has entered the shadow war, a war where death can come at the hand of friend or enemy alike.

This is a story about a struggle that sucks in men, both military and civilian, and spits them out as battle hardened veterans. Or corpses. It is the story of bitter, bloody fighting, of the struggle to survive in the cauldron of Afghanistan. A story of both regular soldiers, and private contractors. For these are the killers-for-hire once known as mercenaries. The Devil’s Guard has returned.

Meet the Author

Eric is UK author of over fifteen books. He is a graduate of University College, Cardiff, where he studied politics. He served part-time in the Commandos, the Royal Marines Reserve, reaching the rank of Colour Sergeant. During his service he was seconded to take part in and lead a number of sensitive and classified missions, as well as undertake instructor assignments in a number of Special Forces schools. During this time he pursued a full-time career as an independent coach and consultant, working with various blue chip and smaller organisations. Eric Meyer has developed a specialty as a motivational coach, and drew heavily on his military experience to give his clients the tools for leadership, initiative and audacity that are the mark of the small unit commander.

Working with a number of authors and experts, he has been co-writer on a number of self-improvement and motivational titles. As an author, his books are sold all over the world in paperback, hardback and ebook format. He writes mainly in the genres of military thriller, and detective thriller. Indeed, his first novel, Devil's Guard, The Real Story, is a fact based novel based on the French IndoChina war in what is now known as Vietnam. With a number of novels set during World War II on the Eastern Front, as well as novels of the Vietnam War, his military experience is reflected in a range of war fiction titles. The detective thrillers are based on an NYPD detective, Gabriel de Sade, a Special Forces veteran.

He has also presented a number of documentary films, mostly exploring historical subjects ranging from early Christian history to the mystical brilliance of Leonardo da Vinci.

Eric is married with three children, and still pursues his military and historical research in his available spare time. He is also a keen runner, and has achieved success in a number of road and off-road races, including fell-running, the challenging sport of competitive running across hill ranges in the countryside. Throughout his career he has combined his extensive and growing knowledge of military affairs with his zest for the latest motivational tools to produce novels that will both thrill and entertain the reader. Current projects include research into the causes and progress of the war in Afghanistan. Currently, Eric Meyer is a full-time novelist.
