Benghazi Breakout

(1976)
(The third book in the Glasshouse Gang series)
A novel by

 
 
Thirty-six men had broken out of the Glasshouse at Sharafim.

Now only fifteen are left to call themselves the Glasshouse Gang Commando Unit, and live on their wits and their desert knowledge and their fighting skills, and evade both the Eighth Army and Rommel's Afrika Korps.

One far-sighted general at Cairo H.Q. had seen a use for John Offer's misfits and sent them to wreak death and destruction behind Rommel's lines. And now the Germans hold hostages - two of the Glasshouse Gang, prisoners in the hands of the S.S. in Benghazi. They will not live long unless their comrades can pull off another of their daring exploits...
