Book Description

Two young soldiers use their skills as snipers to confront the horrors of chemical warfare on the battlefronts of World War 1 Europe.

Michael Sauvage, a prairie-farmer's son, and Erik Path, a young carpenter's apprentice from Toronto, are among the first soldiers to join the Allied sniping program. Michael and Erik could not be more different, but their unique skills, when combined, make them the deadliest sniper team in Europe.

Now those skills will be put to the test, and the price of failure could result in the deaths of millions of allied soldiers and civilians, and defeat at the hands of the Germans.

Rumors that the Germans are close to completing a new battlefield gas; odorless, colorless, and invariably fatal, have the Allies scrambling to find a way to stop this horrifying killer for which they have no defense.

Michael and Erik are given the task of tracking down the laboratory where the gas is being manufactured and tested, deep behind enemy lines in occupied France. Their mission: destroy the lab and assassinate the scientist leading the research.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good idea but... 15 April 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An interesting book, sadly it got more and more unrealistic, with little relevance to historical fact. Going hunting with a .303 in German occupied France during a covert op? Just wandering across the front line by evading a few German patrols?

1.0 out of 5 stars Boys own..!! 21 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very poor story and grammar..!! A very weak plot and definitely aimed at the children s section, except for the feeble attempt at "spicing up" the story with sections of vulgarity..

Good story but in places a bit far fetched. Did hold your attention in a lot of places and overall a good read.
