For God and Country is the third book in the award-winning Texas Gun Club series. January 1944: The great Allied advance up the Italian peninsula has come to a halt before the formidable German Gustav Line at Monte Cassin o. For the American soldiers in the valley, there is nothing to do but wait as General Mark Clark prepares his plan to shatter the German defenses and continue Fifth Army’s march to Rome. Captain Perkin Berger and First Lieutenant Sam Taft are spared the monotony of waiting. They’re given a week of well-deserved leave in an Adriatic resort town, where they have no responsibility other than relaxation. Proving the old maxim that “no plan survives first contact with the enemy,” Sam and Perk find themselves involved in the Canadian battle at Ortona, and once again they are thrust into the middle of a secret war between the Third Reich and the Vatican. When the cousins return from their R&R, it isn’t long until the order is given. Against all sound military judgment, the exhausted and under-strength Gun Club is to cross the Rapido River and breach the Gustav Line . . . alone.
About the author
Commander Mark Bowlin, USN (Ret.) is a somewhat opinionated former naval intelligence officer who believes that the Dallas Cowboys will eventually win another Super Bowl, that Texas is truly God’s country, and that good Texas barbeque and a cold beer is superior to champagne and caviar in every respect. Mark was a soldier in the Texas National Guard before being commissioned as an ensign in the United States Navy. Mark has lived in Wales, Japan, and Italy and served in a variety of billets ashore and afloat in the United States and overseas. His awards include the Legion of Merit and Defense Meritorious Service Medal among other personal, unit, and campaign awards. He is the award-winning author of The Texas Gun Club and Victory Road. This is his third novel in the Texas Gun Club series.
