(1986)
A novel by

 
 
December 1944, and in the Ardennes the Germans have just launched their offensive against raw American troops. Experiencing the first shock of that onslaught is Conner, a young U.S. lieutenant, who also witnesses the deliberate murder of two of their fellows by three G.I.'s travelling away from the battle zone. These three are not deserters, but hand-picked German troops, part of Operation Gryphon, designed to cause terror and confusion in the U.S. ranks. In a story of ever tightening tension British and American sources combine to try and frustrate the enemy.
