Lightening Strike

(The first book in the Recon Force series)
A novel by

In the bestselling tradition of W. E. B. Griffin's Brotherhood of War comes the first action-packed book in an exciting World War II adventure series about a special Army unit comprised of elite warriors. In the dark days of World War II, a special unit was commissioned by Lieutenant James Dunmore, an intelligence officer on General George Patton's staff. Made up of the toughest and bravest volunteers the Army had to offer, the unit had only one purpose—to hit first, hit hard, and kill without hesitation. This band of elite warriors would become known as the Mohawkers--and their force was the last thing the enemy would see. For their inaugural mission, the Mohawkers are sent to the African coast ahead of the Allied invasion to take out a battery of railroad-mounted artillery. Led by the relentless Lieutenant "Iron John" Parnell, the ragtag band of soldiers must fight their way past a bloodthirsty corps of French Foreign Legionnaires, outwit an arrogant Luftwaffe captain, and grab the guns. Surrounded by enemies who'd gladly end their first mission before it begins, the men know there's no room for mistakes—and they'll have no mercy for anyone who gets in their way.
