Operation Long Jump

(The second book in the Jock Miles WW2 Adventure series)
A novel by

The Allied invasion of Papua New Guinea begins. Badly. Alternative history takes center stage as Operation Long Jump, the second book in the Jock Miles World War 2 adventure series, plunges us into the horrors of combat in the rainforests of Papua New Guinea. As a prelude to the Allied invasion, Jock Miles and his men seize the Japanese observation post on the mountain overlooking Port Moresby. The main invasion that follows quickly degenerates to a bloody stalemate, as the inexperienced, demoralized, and poorly led GIs struggle against the stubborn enemy. Seeking a way to crack the impenetrable Japanese defenses, infantry officer Jock finds himself in a new role - aerial observer. He's teamed with rookie pilot John Worth, in a prequel to his role as hero of Grasso's East Wind Returns. Together, they struggle to expose the Japanese defenses - while highly exposed themselves - in their slow and vulnerable spotter plane. The enemy is not the only thing troubling Jock: his Australian lover, Jillian Forbes, has found a new and dangerous way to contribute to the war effort.
