No frills WWII action tale. A nicely done debut ...--Kirkus Reviews.Based on the author's personal experience during his duty as a guard in a camp for nazi prisoners, we meet Technical Sergeant Sandy Delman, a young Jewish-American soldier who is assigned to a prison camp in rural France. .When Delman, a celebrated high school football star, enlists in the Army to fight Germans, he never suspects that his poor eyesight will sentence him to an assignment as a POW camp guard. When he reacts violently to racial slurs from some of the prisoners, he loses his stripes and is consigned to work under a hostile supply sergeant. .As more and more captured Germans pour into the camp, provisions begin to run out. The POWs fear it's a plot to starve them to death. When his commanding officer, Colonel Nelson, fails to get fresh supplies, Delman suggests a risky plan to lead a convoy of trucks, driven by POWs, with guards, to get their supplies themselves from nearby depots. .Ironically, Delman finds himself the unlikely leader of an expedition on which hangs the survival of hundreds of Nazi POWs as well as the fate of Colonel Nelson's career. When the perilous journey across the French countryside becomes even more dangerous and threatening, Delman finds his own life is also at risk.
