Book Description

It is January, 1943, in Tunisia during World War 2. Captain Drew Matthews is sent on a mission behind enemy lines to secure vital information. He is ambushed but is able to escape. Joining a group of American soldiers, led by Corporal Dane Shaw, refugees from the recent battle, they make their way across the desert to the city of Sfax, where Drew is to meet with the mysterious ‘Monsieur Gascoigne’. They stumble across a small group of Arabs and Germans guarding a halftrack filled with treasure looted from murdered Jews and rescue their prisoner, the beautiful Frenchwoman Angelique DuBois. While driving to Sfax, Dane shares his Christian faith with his companions while trying to avoid a group of Arab raiders. Dane relies on God to direct his life while proving himself a wise and outstanding commander with ferocious fighting skills. While Dane and his men fight off the Arab bandits, Drew and Angelique enter Sfax for their meeting only to be met with a number of very unwelcome surprises. Escaping by a series of fortunate circumstances, which leads them to believe that there may be something to Dane’s God, they return to camp only to run into more trouble. Zabronski, one of the American soldiers, filled with lust for the treasure and for Angelique, subverts the other soldiers, kidnaps Drew and Angelique and wounds Dane. Forcing Drew to reveal where the treasure is hidden, they are met by the Germans and Arab bandits who have joined forces and tracked them down. Drew and Angelique are rescued by Dane, and in a wild night ride across the desert, pursued by vengeful Germans and Arabs, they attempt to reach the American lines before dawn. Will they make it, and will Angelique solve the dilemma of which man she loves and which god she will serve?

1.0 out of 5 stars I found this book borderline racist 29 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bar the Germans every person of colour were savages. It's a patriotic historically inaccurate book. Putting that aside the action at times is good. I found it an uncomfortable read as the Arabs were depicted as untrustworthy dogs. I think there could have been a more Christian way of telling this story.

1.0 out of 5 stars boring 2 Feb. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
I have to agree with some of the other reviews. Christianity is not about racism - but this book unfortunately depicts the brown people (exception the Germans) as savages.

Basically it's propaganda book that shows Christian Americans good - brown people bad.

Preachy nonsense too. Better Christian romance out that that doesn't embark on a racist journey
