An action-packed WWII short story that unfolds deep in the jungles of Papua New Guinea.

With little support and even fewer supplies, an elite Australian commando force prepares to face an experienced Japanese enemy—one that’s ready to do anything to gain control of a strategic nearby port.

After a high-stress landing during a Japanese air raid, the Australian commandos live in fear for weeks, facing the constant threat of a Japanese attack.

But one successful ambush gives the Australians the confidence to plan a larger, bolder operation. The Japanese are formidable foes, and the squad barely makes it out alive—and only with help from the New Guinea Volunteer Rifles.

Now, with pressure mounting and the responsibilities of war resting heavily on the lieutenants’ shoulders, the Australian leaders must decide what they are willing to risk for victory—when failure could mean total devastation.

Glatte’s novella is a gritty, action-packed military thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
