Army Ranger Sergeant Jack Grant is in deep trouble. A blazing attack on Bagram Airbase, and a brutal boxing bout against a monstrous opponent have left him wounded and badly beaten. But more trouble is on its way. A court-martial looms based on trumped up charges, and with it the threat of a long spell of imprisonment. Battling enemies from both sides, Grant’s troubles escalate when he is falsely accused of attacking an infantry officer.

The base commander, General Weathers, offers Grant a way out. The offer of a battlefield commission, in return for taking insane risks on a vital mission that could transform the war. It sounds too good to be true, and it is. The chances of coming back alive are virtually zero. Yet if he is to stay out of jail, he has no other option. Grant must lead a four-man fireteam deep inside enemy territory, and with every mile they travel, the bodies stack up ever higher.

Up against overwhelming odds, the Rangers battle to achieve their objective. Every step of the journey is a nightmare of bloodthirsty, savage enemies and treacherous, backstabbing allies. Special Operations: Grant’s Battle is an incredible story of a tough, violent man in a tough, violent land. A full-length novel by the bestselling author of many Spec Ops books. These include the popular SEAL Team Bravo stories, Heroes of Afghanistan, Raider, Echo Six, and Devil's Guard titles.

About the Author

Eric is UK author of over fifteen books. He is a graduate of University College, Cardiff, where he studied politics. He served part-time in the Commandos, the Royal Marines Reserve, reaching the rank of Colour Sergeant. During his service he was seconded to take part in and lead a number of sensitive and classified missions, as well as undertake instructor assignments in a number of Special Forces schools. During this time he pursued a full-time career as an independent coach and consultant, working with various blue chip and smaller organisations. Eric Meyer has developed a specialty as a motivational coach, and drew heavily on his military experience to give his clients the tools for leadership, initiative and audacity that are the mark of the small unit commander.

Working with a number of authors and experts, he has been co-writer on a number of self-improvement and motivational titles. As an author, his books are sold all over the world in paperback, hardback and ebook format. He writes mainly in the genres of military thriller, and detective thriller. Indeed, his first novel, Devil's Guard, The Real Story, is a fact based novel based on the French IndoChina war in what is now known as Vietnam. With a number of novels set during World War II on the Eastern Front, as well as novels of the Vietnam War, his military experience is reflected in a range of war fiction titles. The detective thrillers are based on an NYPD detective, Gabriel de Sade, a Special Forces veteran.

He has also presented a number of documentary films, mostly exploring historical subjects ranging from early Christian history to the mystical brilliance of Leonardo da Vinci.

Eric is married with three children, and still pursues his military and historical research in his available spare time. He is also a keen runner, and has achieved success in a number of road and off-road races, including fell-running, the challenging sport of competitive running across hill ranges in the countryside. Throughout his career he has combined his extensive and growing knowledge of military affairs with his zest for the latest motivational tools to produce novels that will both thrill and entertain the reader. Current projects include research into the causes and progress of the war in Afghanistan. Currently, Eric Meyer is a full-time novelist.
