Highlanders' Revenge tells the story of a Mash Man, the name of an outsider with a group of Highland soldiers.
This Mas Man is an Englishman, already marked by the loss of the love of his life by a murder and by the retreat before the advancing Nazi hordes of the Blitzkrieg.
His fellow soldiers are wary of this sullen and secretive outsider as they find themselves in Egypt where they find themselves battling an enemy ad natural conditions that test them to the very limits of their physical and metal endurance.
They find themselves caught up in one of the largest and most vicious battles of the entire Second World War, El Alamein.
The novel combines truth with fiction as it retells the exploits of the 5th Camerons, an amazing military unit as it saw action in most of the decisive and major battles of not only the North African theatre of war but also of Western Europe.
Our two authors skillfully interweave the fictional life of Mash with the factual history of the 5th Camerons.
At only £9.99 this is a gripping military novel and, with its meticulous research, will be an ideal book for lovers of this genre.
It's available from the That's Books and Entertainment bookshop, just to the right of this review.
