World War Two is at its height.

A formidable flyer and outstanding marksman, at twenty Charles Hubbard stands out amongst his comrades.

Shooting down an enemy aircraft before even being sent to France, he quickly gains a reputation as an Ace before being himself shot down.

Returning to England as the Nazi push continues, Hubbard continues to gain renown as he becomes embroiled in the Battle of Britain before being posted to North Africa.

Soon he finds himself fighting a very different war to the one he is used to, a war not just against the Germans and Italians but against the desert itself.

In an area known simply as The Cauldron, Hubbard's bravery and moral stamina are pushed to the very limit time and again.

Teetering on the verge of breakdown, his men are looking up to him to lead them on towards victory.

Hubbard does not know if he has the strength left within himself to rise up once more and overcome his fears...

'The Cauldron' is a thrilling World War Two adventure from Richard Townshend Bickers.
