One Stick and a Waco

A well-written, fast moving story of brave Screamin’ Eagles behind German lines during Operation Market Garden!

Review

J. M. Taylor scores again with his second in the “Stick” series, featuring everyday heroes from the famous 101st Airborne “Screamin’ Eagles.”

2nd Lietenant Alex Pfister barely survived D-Day, and is now on loan to the OSS.  Preparing for Operation MARKET GARDEN, he’s dropped behind enemy lines, and begins an odyssey that involves a beautiful American nurse POW, a downed Tuskegee airman, several paratroopers from different elements of the 101st, and a german shepherd named Max.  Will Pfister lead this ragtag bunch back to enemy lines, or will the Nazis find them and finish Pfister for good?

This book is well-written, with fast moving action and likable, realistic characters.  It’s realistic without being too graphic, and the reader feels drawn in to the action.  Taylor also works some humor into the story to keep more human.  This book definitely made me want to read the first in the series, and I look forward to the sequel.  Highly recommended.
