The Last Commando

By Michael Asher

Libya, 1942 – Rommel’s Africa Korps is sweeping across the desert. Ragged Allied forces are being torn apart in brutal fire-fights on the scorched sands. A desperate message to the Prime Minister is entrusted to First Officer Madeleine Rose, WRNS. Her codename: Runefish.

When GHQ hears that Runefish’s plane has been shot down behind enemy lines, they send for battle-hardened Sergeant Tom Caine. Caine is a first-class soldier who nearly always does what he’s told. He will lead a squad of specialist commandos into the heart of enemy territory and either rescue or execute Runefish. If he refuses to take this near-suicide mission, he faces court martial. Now the outcome of the war depends on his following orders.

Death or glory beckons . . .

Michael Asher served in the Parachute Regiment and SAS. A fluent Arab speaker, he has lived for years among the Bedouin peoples. He has made expeditions in many countries, always preferring to travel on foot or with animal transport. He is also the author of Shoot to Kill: From 2 Para to the SAS.
