Sand and Blood
This a factual-based fictional story of intensity from the start, about a young conscript sent into the WW11 African campaign, and culminating in the battle of El Alamein. It is about the futility and horrors of war, and its psychological effects on those involved, including the innocent population. It is about the main character’s involvement with shady characters who are into espionage and counter-intelligence subterfuge through interception and encryption of enemy signals. The story then moves to England, where there is unlikely heroism and romances formed between the main character and a Land Army girl, under war conditions, concluding to an explosive ending.
