The year is 1944.

After five hard-fought years, the Allies are close to victory.

But Germany still has one last secret - and one that could still turn the war in its favour.

Travelling on a U-boat to Japan is a highly explosive uranium bomb, the first of its kind.

But why are the Nazis giving such a precious weapon to the Japanese?

And where might the Japanese use it?

-Con Aliados como éstos no hacen falta enemigos del Eje.-

Género. Novela.

Lo que nos cuenta. A finales del año 1944, y durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, un submarino alemán lleva una carga muy importante a bordo con destino desconocido. Por su parte, los Aliados planean un asalto de 12 comandos, con un grupo compuesto a partes iguales por operativos estadounidenses, británicos y franceses, en el seno de la Operación Arc Light, que transportará a los militares en submarino hasta una pequeña isla

Well written and readable. Nice interesting relationships between the French, British and Americans during possible confrontations with the Germans in WW2. Enjoyable.

Good fun romp, with notes of Where Eagles Dare, Guns of Navarone, the Dirty Dozen and all that jazz. Not for those who want an accurate, on the nose piece of realism. But then, that Sixties/ Seventies men's adventure genre was never about that. Genuine moments of suspense. Toss your brain away and enjoy. Nice twists kept me jumping to the end. If you're an American, give it a miss, just saying. ...more

Wonderful WWII story with one of my favourite characters I have read this year, Maddox.

For lovers of MacLean, Ludlum, iggins and Forsyth, you will not be disappointed.

I was really thrilled with Maddox Book 01, "When Eagles Burn", so I gladly paid the $2.99 for this on Kindle. Honestly, it was even better than the first one. The book is over double the length of the first one, so it gives a lot more room for character development (which Jack Hayes did really well here). The only reasons this book isn't a 5-star read was the violence and the ending. I won't give any spoilers, but the cliffhanger ending really annoyed me. So overall, this was a really good book ...more

I was a little confused by the ending of this book but figured it out. It was a good read if you like semi historical fiction.

A joint force of British, American, and French commandoes are tasked assaulting a fortified German island in the Pacific and capture the Nazis' last secret weapon--an atomic bomb. But there is more to this mission than that relatively simple task. Each team of specialists has its own secret orders to follow, and successfully executing them means betraying the other teams.

In Blood Red Sea, British author Jack Hayes creates a wartime story of deceit and double-crosses in the tradition of Alistair

This is my second Jack Hayes book. I downloaded Candleburn, enjoyed it and started following Jack on Twitter.
I wanted to read Saving Hitler after seeing its release tweeted and then found out it was the second book in a series. I do not like reading books out of order so I picked this one up first.
I really enjoyed it. It reminded me of Sunday afternoons as a child watching films like the Kelly's Heroes and Von Ryan's Express. Bravado nonsense, but first rate bravado nonsense.
I would read it wit

Blood Red Sea.

I thought the book was quite good and I thought the book was written in the past couple of years
