A Time for War, Paperback Book


On 6 June 1944, Private First Class Michael Donovan and 13,000 US Paratroopers soar over the English Channel towards their Drop Zone in enemy-occupied France.

Their mission: capture the town of Carentan from the Germans and secure an operations base for Allied forces.

Suddenly, the sky explodes with anti-aircraft fire, and Donovan's C-47 Skytrain is hit!

Within moments, the troops exit the aircraft and plummet towards a deadly destination.

On the ground, Donovan finds himself alone in the Lion's Den without food, shelter, or a weapon.

In order to survive, the rookie soldier must rely on his instincts and locate his platoon before time runs out.
