Frozen Sun

(2012)
(The third book in the Devils With Wings series)
A novel by

 
After a successful mission in Greece and taking part in the first airborne invasion in military history, Fallschirmjager paratrooper Paul Brand and sergeant Max Grun continue their wartime adventures. High Command has assigned a new task to the specialist battalion. Paul and his outfit are not only pitted against heavy artillery and Soviet armoured trains, but also thrown into the merciless siege surrounding Leningrad against a desperate enemy.

The Soviet Army is frantic to break out of the ring of steel that surrounds them and have successfully secured two bridgeheads across the River Neva. Paul and his battalion are the only strategic reserve and the last resort to hold back the Russian hordes.

As the hostile Russian winter sets in and the Soviets' desperation mounts, the casualties begin to stack up. Will Paul and his men hold out? Or will this be one mission where the enormity of the enemy forces, the size of the task set before them and the bitterness of winter prove to be too much?

Frozen Sun, the thrilling sequel to Devils With Wings: Silk Drop, is based on factual events and written by an author with extensive army intelligence experience.

EXCERPT
... just at that moment, the first salvos of shells were launched mercilessly at the Russian positions, shattering the stillness of the early dawn. Paul looked west and could see the rapid flashes of gunfire against the pale dawn sky. He knew that, in Army Group North's sector alone, an orchestra of over a thousand big guns would be pounding the Russian positions opposite and along the entire Barbarossa front. Up to seven thousand artillery pieces would be unleashing a hailstorm of death and destruction. The screaming shells could be heard overhead as they were propelled towards the enemy. It was easy to imagine the devastation they would be causing to all those sons of Mother Russia.
