When a CIA agent is captured inside China and sentenced to death by firing squad, Lieutenant Jack Grant’s Ranger fireteam volunteers to carry out a rescue mission. But the odds are stacked against them from the outset and the operation fails.
Worse is to come. An unfounded claim of war crimes against Grant spells the end of his career and his freedom. His one chance to clear his name is to launch another mission and bring back the condemned agent. Yet the odds are stacked against them even more, and success against the Chinese hordes means racking up a large body count. When the Rangers arrive inside China, Grant encounters something unimaginable. A vast concentration camp, housing starving, barefoot and emaciated Uighur prisoners. He also encounters an enemy who is waiting for them, gloating with anticipation. If that isn’t enough to condemn the mission to failure, an ally waits in the shadows to stab the Rangers in the back.
Special Operations: Grant’s Fightback is an incredible story of tough, violent men in the cruel, vicious world of the Chinese gulags. 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.
