In the dark, uncertain days of 1941 and 1942, when Rommel's tanks were sweeping toward Suez, a handful of daring raiders were making history for the Allies. These were the SAS-Stirling's desert raiders, the brainchild of a deceptively mild-mannered man with a brilliant idea. Small teams of resourceful, highly trained men would penetrate beyond the front lines of the opposing armies and wreak havoc where the German's least expected it. The Phantom Major is the classic account of these desert raids.

"Sometimes Irish and sometimes Scots, reader Robert Whitfield's multiple British accents, from aristocratic speech to street slang, add color and realism to the suspenseful stories of daring moonlight attacks. This military story is ideally suited to audio."-AudioFile
