4696 sudden death

4696 Sudden Death!

Back Cover SummaryEdit

Mountain men - each one of them - a sergeant, a corporal and a private, all trained for war, but each a highly skilled mountaineer in his own right.

Their difficult and dangerous mission was to find a VIP Brigadier who had been kidnapped by the Germans and hidden high in the Italian mountains before being hustled to Berlin. Within hours the British mountain troops were hot on the trail.

But when men who climb together fall out, when accidents breed suspicion and distrust, every sheer rock face can spell - sudden death!
