Counter
November, 1942. In the Pacific with the U.S. Marines on Guadalcanal, and in North Africa with the British Armored Tank Command, James Reasoner puts readers into the thick of the most deadly action of World War II. The British Tank Command has been fighting an uphill battle with Rommel's Panzers. Brothers Joe and Dale Parker, detailed from the U.S. Army to help the British tankers, find themselves helping to turn the tide against the Desert Fox. Meanwhile, their friend Adam Bergman is in the Solomon Islands with the marines, as the U.S. starts the bloody fight to reclaim the Pacific.

Reasoner takes us into the heart of the fight in both theaters of war, and to wartime struggles on the home front, and in hospitals on ships and in temporary quarters near the fronts. The immediacy of his prose and the urgency of his story convey a passion and conviction that will stir the blood of anyone who cares about freedom and wants to understand its price.
