Thunder in May

by Phil Johnson | July 15th, 2011

THUNDER IN MAY is the brand new novel from author Andy Johnson, and the prequel to Seelöwe Nord: The Germans are coming. This latest novel is a dramatised and part-fictionalised war story centred on the German offensive in the West of May-June 1940, which culminated in the evacuation from Dunkirk.

Written in the same fast-paced, snapshot style of his first book, Andy has brought back some of his favourite characters, including Sergeant Davey Jackson of the Coldstream Guards and Hauptsturmfuhrer Merkal of the SS Totenkopf. As Andy’s readers have come to expect, this latest novel is a breakneck adventure of non-stop battle action, written with a realism and pace that will leave you feeling breathless.

Some of the major battle sequences include the assault on Fort Eben Emael, the crossing of the Meuse, the stand of the Guards on the River Escaut, the British Counter Stroke at Arras, an infamous war crime, and of course the evacuation from Dunkirk itself.

If you have ever wondered what it is like to be a soldier in battle, this book will get you as close to the experience as it is possible to get, without actually being there. Not for the feint hearted, this full on war story usually retails at £11.99 and as with all of Andy’s novels, a percentage of the profits is donated annually to British military charities.

The novel will shortly be available from many outlets including…
