The Tankies’ Sergeant Stiles returns, recently promoted and angrier than ever. He’s got a new crew and a new tank, a Sherman Firefly with a high-velocity gun capable of taking out even the fearsome German Tiger. Too bad the enemy have a new tank of their own, the mighty King Tiger, with twice the armour and firepower of the original. As Stiles and his men join the Allied advance into the Nazi homeland, they soon realise that every inch of ground will be bitterly contested by the foe… and that there are worse horrors than Tigers lurking in the gloom of the last German winter. Suggested for mature readers.
