Pals War: The Hundred Days Offensive

by A. A. G. Whitehead

It is 1918 and time is running out for the mighty German army â?¦

The Americans have joined the war in numbers as the British and French forces face another bloody onslaught.

The Germans are preparing for a last roll of the dice. They intend to split the French and British armies, drive a wedge between them, then charge for the Channel ports. The British will have to sue for peace. The French will be hammered by the brutal German war machine.

The British need more intelligence if they are to scupper the plan. Once again, they need Daniel Byrne and his fearless Special Operations unit – The Knaves.

The Knaves are a crack unit made up of childhood friends from the mining towns of the northeast of England. They are to be sent on perilous missions behind enemy lines as the war comes to a head on France’s ravaged fields.

Byrne’s men must once more fight, not just for their lives, but for the survival of everything and everyone they hold dear. Daniel finally comes face to face with his nemesis as he foils the plot to sabotage the Armistice.

In the concluding book in his military adventure series, AAG Whitehead’s Pals War: The Hundred Days Offensive, skilfully blends historical fact and fiction in an all-action tribute the The Great War’s unsung heroes. The pals experience the horror of war in all its macabre, frightening and tragic glory. But mixed with the horror is a journey of discovery of self, new lands and the true meaning of friendship.

Three Special Operation Thrillers

by Bob Mayer

Three great reads from NY Times Bestselling Author and Former Green Beret Bob Mayer:

THE JEFFERSON ALLEGIANCE #2 National Bestseller #1 Amazon Thriller

The 4th of July 1826. As Thomas Jefferson lies dying, he gives his part of his Jefferson Cipher to Edgar Allen Poe, with instructions to take the disks to West Point. In Massachusetts, John Adams entrusts his part of the Cipher to Colonel Thayer, the superintendent of the Military Academy. As Thayer rides away, Adams utters his final words: “Thomas Jefferson survives.”

In the present, Green Beret Paul Ducharme has been recalled from Afghanistan after the â??accidental’ death of his best friend, the son of one of the Philosophers. While Ducharme is visiting his friend’s gravesite in Arlington, an old man is executed by a member from the Society of Cincinnati know as the Surgeon, who is seeking to gather all the pieces of the cipher. In a nearby restaurant, former CIA and now Curator at Monticello, Evie Tolliver, waits anxiously for her mentor to arrive, but he’s killed by the same assassin at the Zero Milestone. His heart and the Philosopher’s head are displayed as a grisly message on top of the stone, echoing Jefferson’s famous head-heart letter.

Ducharme and Tolliver, the unknowing heirs to become the next generation of caretakers of the Jefferson Allegiance, team up and must battle the Surgeon to assemble the Cipher and find the Jefferson Allegiance, a document that has kept the balance of power in the United States for over two centuries.

EYES OF THE HAMMER #1 Amazon Thriller

A US Army Special Forces team carrying sterilized weapons and unmarked uniforms is on its way to Colombia. The mission: conduct covert, unilateral raids to destroy cocaine processing laboratories.

Of course nothing is as it seems especially once the CIA gets involved. Throw in an Israeli mercenary, betrayal and double-dealing in Washington and the team soon finds itself wondering what the real mission is.

SECTION EIGHT

A present day Dirty Dozen.

Captain Jim Vaughn is an officer in disgrace. Commanding a Special Forces mission to rescue hostages in the Philippines, Vaughn’s team is destroyed, and when the smoke clears, he is made the scapegoat. Forced into the shadows by the scandal, Vaughn is offered a chance to redeem himself when he is approached by an enigmatic government agent working for The Organization, looking for a few desperate men.

The Organization pulled strings long before the founding of the United States. It dates back to the destruction of the Knights Templar and even further in history. As secrets from the Golden Lilly Operation and the infamous Unit 731 from World War II become exposed, you have to wonder who the real enemy is.

Section Eight are the men and women called upon by The Organization to do the impossible. They are the soldiers who have nothing to lose. They make up a top-secret unit tasked with suicide missions. Vaughn is now given a new team, a group of men and women outside of the regular chain of command. These are men and women who have crossed the line one too many times. Drug users. Felons. The terminally ill. These are now the soldiers that Vaughn must trust with his life. Even with a traitor in their ranks.

A team of such unique properties is the perfect tool to use against America’s enemies…and possibly America itself.



The Last Deserter
