Storm Front by Charles Ryan
"CHARLES RYAN is the real deal."
In the dark days of World War II, a special unit was commissioned by Lieutenant James Dunmore, an intelligence officer on General George Patton's staff. Made up of tough volunteers, the unit had only one purpose--to hit first, hit hard, and kill without hesitation. This band of elite warriors would become known as the Mohawkers--and the last thing the enemy would see would be... RECON FORCE STORM FRONT.
The liberation of Europe has begun. Deep in occupied France. Lt. John "Red" Parnell and his Blue Team are conducting raids with the Resistance when they receive new orders. Rommel is to be arrested for conspiracy in the plot to kill Hitler. Their mission: escort an American officer to Rommel's HQ. to see if the Desert Fox will join the Allies before his downfall.
But a traitorous double-agent in their midst alerts the Gestapo, and the squad and their French comrades are captured. Tortured in the hellish 18th-century keep of Carpentras. Parnell and his men escape, only to learn of a Nazi plan to kill Eisenhower. Now they must stop the assassins on the eve of the Battle of the Bulge--and fight for their lives when they are surrounded in the isolated stronghold of Bastogne...
"Ryan knows how to spin a pulse-tingler."
