From acclaimed action author David Morrell comes a short thriller based on bizarre actual events. On a blistering desert landscape in World War II, two armies face each other. One belongs to the legendary French Foreign Legion, but the other belongs to the French Foreign Legion also, one side working for the Allies, the other for the Germans. In this vivid historical recreation of one of the strangest battles in modern warfare, a terrible twist of Fate compels comrades-in-arms, who trained together, ate together, and slept in the same barracks, to become mortal enemies.

This short story sucked. Its 26 pages of crappy tale. Dont waste your time.
I've been a David Morrell fan for many years, and even though this is a short story, it's great. Very interesting bit of history in this brief story. The only complaint is that it was a SHORT story, rather than a full length story, because the enjoyment came to an end quickly! If you want to sample the kind of author David Morrell is, books like this are a good place to start so you can get to know his style. Read one of his stories, and you'll want to read them all--whether they are short stories or regular length novels!! He is a master.
