In the heat of battle you have a choice: Death or Glory . . . 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 is lost 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.

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 beckon . . .
