'Fascinating and convincing' THE TIMES.

17 September 1944:

The Allies have launched the largest airborne offensive in history, delivering 36,000 troops by parachute and glider to the Dutch-German Border. In what will become known as the Battle of Arnhem, half of them will fall as casualties of war. Among their number is Theo Trickey, a young paratrooper so dreadfully injured he is not expected to survive.

Under the care of Medical Officer Captain Daniel Garland, Trickey is shipped to Germany as a Prisoner of War. As Garland slowly nurses him back to health, he discovers that there's much that is unusual about Trickey, starting with a chance meeting he had with Erwin Rommel before the War...

From the bestselling author of Under an English Heaven, Airborne is the first in an unforgettable trilogy that tells the story of a young soldier, of a new regiment and how, together, they altered the course of a war.

Robert Radcliffe was born and educated in London. A journalist and advertising copywriter, he also spent ten years working as a commercial pilot, flying all over the world. He is the bestselling author of nine novels, including The Lazarus Child, Under an English Heaven and Dambuster. He lives in Suffolk.
