Publisher's Summary

It's 17 September 1944. The Allies launch the largest airborne offensive in history, delivering 36,000 troops by parachute and glider to the Dutch/German border. In nine days' time, half of them will be casualties of war. Among their number is Theo Trickey, a young paratrooper so dreadfully injured he is not expected to survive. Under the care of Medical Officer Captain Daniel Garland, Trickey is shipped to Germany as a prisoner of war. As Garland slowly nurses him back to health, he discovers that there's something unusual about Trickey, starting with a chance meeting Trickey had with Erwin Rommel before the war....
