Back Cover SummaryEdit

4888 codeword torch

One man held the key to the operation call by the codeword - "Torch" - the huge Allied invasion of North Africa. His name was Pete Macrory, a Canadian in the Royal Engineers - and nobody trusted him an inch.

To find out why, and what made Pete tick in his own peculiar way, you had to go back to General Wolfe's attack on Quebec in 1759.

That's when a distant ancestor of Pete's, young Jock Macrory, was involved in a deadly adventure of his own. . .
