This book for young adults follows a teenager as he deals with the harsh realities of life during the second world war.

Time and circumstance makes him run away to lie about his age and fight in the Canadian army in world war two.
Lieutenant Harsker and his elite Commandos are given no respite as they are sent behind enemy lines to help the Canadians on the ill fated attack at Dieppe. After escaping, by the skin of their teeth, they are sent to North Africa to destroy valuable equipment which has fallen into the enemy's hands. A fast moving novel the action moves from Europe to Africa and from sea to land.

When the Italians join in alongside the Germans it seems that Britain is about to sink beneath a sea of Fascists.
