To play the fox
Author / Responsible party
War stories. Historical fiction.
In the African skies they battled to outwit Rommel's desert army. North Africa, 23 October 1942. The eve of the battle of El Alamein. Two RAF fighter pilots will play their part: the Englishman Kit Curtis in an unarmed photo-reconnaissance Spitfire, and Ossie Wolf, American volunteer, seconded to fly with a unit of Palestinian Jews behind enemy lines, posing as Panzer troops. Since they flew together during the Siege of Malta, the two men have taken different paths, but Alamein unites them in a desperate struggle as Curtis, downed by a Luftwaffe ace, finds Wolf on a mission that could change the course of the war, and together they encounter Rommel, the Desert Fox.
