Overview

During World War II, the Waffen-SS officer who set Vietnam on fire in Devil's Guard - The Real Story, began his startling military career in the Russian slaughterhouse of the Eastern Front. It is February 1943 in the snowy wastes around Kharkov. Stalingrad has fallen and a resurgent Soviet army is pushing the German forces back. The newly commissioned officer takes up his posting with Deutschland Regiment, SS Division Das Reich, part of von Manstein's Army Group South. Attacked by Russian Sturmovik fighters on his journey, he joins his platoon to be sent behind Russian lines to capture prisoners before a major counter-offensive. He soon displays his formidable military talents in a series of brutal, hard fought battles, but his enemies do not all wear Russian uniform. Away from the front, he finds that the SD and Gestapo are as deadly at the front as they are inside the Third Reich. Forced to tread a tightrope between the Soviets and the Gestapo, his initiation into the Waffen-SS is anything but straightforward. An epic and thrilling account of the war in Russia based on actual events.

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.
