The Afrika Corps

By Christopher Nicole

Cairo, June 1942.

Tobruk has fallen and the British are desperate.

The only way to win the war in North Africa is to eliminate the lethal Afrika Korps commander, Field Marshal Erwin Rommel.

However, one commando raid has already failed disastrously and Rommel is now at the Egyptian frontier.

After being held prisoner in Benghazi for most of 1941, Captain John Warrey MC, Army Intelligence, is recalled.

Having lost the love of his life, Soroya, in brutal circumstances, Warrey is still privately grieving – a process complicated by his troubled and distant relationship with his wife Aileen.

Unsettled to learn he will be returning to Cairo and the painful memories that go with it, he makes his way to Gibraltar to carry out the most dangerous mission of his life: trying to persuade the Arabs to carry out an assassination attempt.

Warrey is a brilliant and brave man, but also intensely reckless – something his dependable yet firm commanding officer Margo Cartwright has already learnt the hard way.

Together they test fragile allied relationships and intervene to rescue old friends.

Can vital information be passed through to the new British commander, General Montgomery in time to prepare the final desert onslaught – the battle at El Alamein …?

The Afrika Korps is a thrilling tale of dangerous love, loyalty and the call of duty.
