Head of Zeus
Freefall by Robert Radcliffe
 The Airborne Trilogy, 2

'A born storyteller' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH


Dreadfully injured in the Arnhem landings, paratrooper Theo Trickey was never expected to survive. Medical Officer Captain Daniel Garland pulled Trickey's comatose body from a pile of corpses, keeping him alive as they were shipped to a prisoner-of-war camp in Germany.

As Garland discovers, Trickey has had a remarkable war. Boy soldier, commando, paratrooper, intelligence officer – fighting from northern France to the African desert. But that's not all. What was Trickey's connection with Germany's greatest general, the recently deceased Erwin Rommel? Why have the Desert Fox's loyalest officers tracked him down and just what is it that they want Garland to do?

Freefall is the second part of Radcliffe's Airborne trilogy which tells the extraordinary story of a young soldier, a new regiment and how, together, they changed the course of a war.

'A must-read: deft, vivid, painfully well-observed' Graham Hurley, author of Finisterre.
