For Sergeant Bill Kane this was the last straw. Bill had run up against "Black Schneider" -- Nazi Major Schneider and his mobile desert commandos -- the most feared striking force in the desert. Schneider squashed Bill's little force as carelessly as he'd have squashed a beetle under his gleaming black jackboots. A solid year of bad luck had made Bill's platoon shunned like the plague. Joining it seemed like asking for a one‑way ticket to perdition. And now they faced Schneider. There was only one way for Bill to change things. Get out, then find and smash the Black Schneider!
