Advance praise for James D. Shipman and Task Force Baum

"A guts-and-glory novel of WWII, based on a true story, told with all the fire and fury of the war. Life-and-death stakes keep the reader glued to the page as outmanned American forces attempt a daring mission in German territory--depicted in rich historical detail, including the battle locations, combat equipment, and timing. A striking testament to the glory of the 'Greatest Generation.'"
--V. S. Alexander, author of The Traitor

"From the first crackling sentence to the vividly rendered climax, Task Force Baum provides the reader with a tempo that never flags. Based on a controversial raid in WWII to liberate a POW camp behind Nazi lines, this novel is revealing, and at the same time, great reading
--James R. Benn, author of When Hell Struck Twelve

And praise for A Bitter Rain

"A Bitter Rain is the best kind of WWII novel, action-packed, populated by complex characters facing deep moral dilemmas, and historically accurate. I loved it."
--Mark Sullivan, author of Beneath a Scarlet Sky

"Harrowing, intense, and oh so real, this story plunges the reader into the nightmare world of Nazi Germany where good and decent people struggle to survive."
--Rhys Bowen, New York Times bestselling author of The Royal Spyness Series and In Farleigh Field

"The writing is clear and sharp, and I was immediately immersed in the time and the tale. I found myself alternately panting and holding my breath as I read. It is exceedingly well executed. Erik, specifically, was very well drawn, and so real and relatable. I loved his humanity and his inner voice, and his plight gave flesh to a German caricature."
--Amy Harmon, New York Times bestselling author of From Sand and Ash
