Synopsis

Desert Danger by Jim Eldridge

DESERT DANGER is the story of 19-year-old Tim Jackson, in North Africa during World War II. Set during the decisive Battle of El Alamein that took place in Egypt in 1942, this is the tale of a young man serving with the British 'Eighth Army' who destroyed German forces. Vividly imagined and historically accurate, readers are taken on a first-hand journey of danger and peril where Tim is desperately trying to keep his hands steady and nerves calm so he can move mines and clear the path for the army to the front.
