Dust on the Sea
by Reeman, Douglas
Captain Mike Blackwood, Royal Marine commando, is a survivor. Toughened in the hellish crucible of Burma, he labours beneath the weight of tradition, the glorious heritage of his family, and the burden of his own self-doubt. Then, in mid-war, Blackwood must find within himself qualities of leadership to inspire his Royal Marines who are destined to be the first to land on the Sicilian shore, and the first to die, as the battle to take back the Continent begins.
