They will strike a mysterious island controlled by the Nazis where the U-boat is scheduled to stop. But nothing about this job is what it appears to be. The British, the French and the Americans all have their own agendas — and so do the Germans. And none of them involve Captain Maddox making it to the end of the war alive.
Saving Hitler  For Captain Maddox, it will be the strangest mission of a long and hard war. Not killing Hitler…but saving him. Poor health has forced Maddox into retirement after a series missions that would have finished off lesser men. He thinks his war is over. Then Major Lyle turns up at his door with one last job. The Allies want to capture one of Hitler’s many doubles – a man who he believes possesses vital information that could shorten the war.But why do they need Maddox for this strike? Lyle isn’t saying. After assembling a joint British-American team, they plan to attack the Nazi fort where the man they need is located. But Maddox can sense something is wrong. Nothing goes the way it was planned.

If Maddox joins him for two more missions, Lyle will leak five important names: the men who ordered Maddox’s previous team to their deaths. Despite his doubts, Maddox agrees. But the mission is one of his hardest yet. It is January 1945 and the chances of Germany winning the war are fading. A breakaway group of Nazi extremists have uncovered a 13th Century plague pit in Poland and built a biological-weapons facility on the site. Their plan is simple but deadly: release Pneumonic Plague – an airborne variant of the Black Death – through the Port of London. With a mortality rate of more than 99%, the Nazis estimate at least 12 million will die. To prevent the disease spreading, Britain will be forced to close her ports. Supplies to the Western Front will dry up. Germany will crush the Allies in France. Rather than destroy the monastery with an aerial bombardment and risk unleashing the plague, the Allies need men on the ground to infiltrate the compound and destroy it. Maddox and Lyle put together a small, specialist unit to go behind enemy lines. But the Germans have captured a member of the Polish Resistance who has knowledge of the attack. The Nazis know Maddox is on his way…
