A 1990 deployment to Iraq, in the build-up to the first Gulf War turns deadly. Old rivalry surfaces amid the danger, tension and stress of life behind enemy lines.
Sergeant James Regan wants nothing more than to be at home with his family. After nearly two decades of putting his life on the line fighting for Queen and country, he has decided it's time to quit the Royal Marines, he just has to make it home.
Was it passion, jealousy or fear that turned a Royal Marine into a calculating, cold-blooded murderer?
Desert OverWatch by Thomas J. Eyre (Codename Orcus, #1)
Iraq, where your fellow soldier becomes your best friend, the person you trust with your life, the person you would die for. But what happens when that very person you thought you knew like a brother turns on you in the middle of a firefight and becomes more vile, more deadly than the enemy? Was it the pressure of the battle or a deep-seated resentment that turned one soldier against his brother as bullets flew? When all you want is to make it home alive to your family, what if one of your own wants to make sure you never do?
DESERT OVERWATCH by Thomas J. Eyre is a gritty and bloody tale of betrayal on the battlefield of Iraq as the Royal Marines face Hell on Earth. Mr. Eyre portrays war for what it is, one battle at a time, humans against humans, in all of its inhumane horror. Although short, the foundation is set for intrigue and more in this raw tale of both physical and emotional brutality.
