Dreadfully injured in the Arnhem landings, paratrooper Theo Trickey was never expected to survive. In the aftermath of defeat, captured Medical Officer Captain Daniel Garland pulled Trickey's comatose body from a pile of copses, keeping him alive as they were shipped to a prisoner-of-war camp in Germany. Now, as Trickey slowly recovers, Garland is discovering that there's something quite unusual about his young charge.
Trickey has had a remarkable war. Boy soldier, commando, paratrooper, intelligence officer - he has fought from the northern coast of France to the deserts of Africa. But that's not all. What was Trickey's connection with Germany's greatest general, the recently deceased Erwin Rommel? Why have the Desert Fox's loyalest officers tracked him down and just what is it that they want Garland to do?
From the bestselling author of Under an English Heaven, Freefall is the second part of Radcliffe's Airborne trilogy which tells the extraordinary story of a young soldier, of a new regiment and how, together, they changed the course of a war.
