Among the extraordinary personalities who are such a part of this story are names that are familiar to anyone with even a cursory knowledge of the war: George Patton, Erwin Rommel, Dwight Eisenhower, Mark Clark, Omar Bradley, as well as Montgomery, Churchill, Roosevelt, and yes, Adolf Hitler. In my last novel, To The Last Man, the horrifying saga of the First World War was told not only through the eyes of the generals, but of the foot soldier and pilot as well. That pattern is repeated in The Rising Tide. Two of the primary voices are relatively unknown characters, a 24 year old tank gunner and a 21 year old paratroop sergeant, Americans who confront the enemy in the deserts and rocky hills of North Africa and then, in the desolate countryside of Sicily. This first book will be followed by The Steel Wave, to be released this May, and then a third volume not yet titled that will take this story to the end of the war in Europe. I also plan to do a fourth book that covers the end of the war in the Pacific.
