Book Description

When Allied intelligence agencies discover the Nazis will complete construction of their atomic bomb before the summer of '44 is out, the race is on to destroy the German facility before the course of the war takes a terrifying turn. Operation Devil's Fire begins two weeks before D-Day with two seemingly unrelated events: a British spy, working in Berlin, steals a top-secret memorandum and is terrified by its contents. Two days, later a P-51 Mustang pilot spots a new German jet bomber while on B-17 escort duty over Germany. When American and British intelligence link the events, there is one inescapable conclusion: Germany will finish the atomic bomb first and, furthermore, possesses a new transatlantic jet bomber. U.S. Army Ranger Sergeant Thomas Dunn and his British Commando rival, Sergeant Malcolm Saunders, receive top secret orders from President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill. Their teams of rugged, lethal soldiers will fly into Germany. Their missions: destroy the German atomic bomb facility and the new jet bomber. Failure means the invasion of Europe was all for nothing. If Hitler drops the atomic weapon on the United States, Roosevelt and Churchill will have no choice but to concede the European continent to the dictator. While the President and Prime Minister wait and worry, the two elite teams fight against enormous odds to complete the missions and return safely home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Operation Devils Fire, by Ronn Munstermann September 5, 2011
Format:Paperback
Operation Devils Fire is an exciting, fast moving book that puts the reader back in time during WWII. Munstermann's research and knowledge of military life during wartime makes his writing very realistic.
He places the reader directly into the heat of battle. This is the most realistic war book I've read in a long time. His description of "dogfights" and of the French resistance adds reality to the novel.
The numerous facts, as well as characters from real-life including Winston Churchill, President Roosevelt and Adolph Hitler, are extremely important to the story.
Once I began reading I didn't want to put the book down. I read it in two sittings.

Operation Devil's Fire is a great read...fast paced, action packed and easy to read. If you like WWII adventure yarns you'll love this. I can't wait to see the authors next offering. It's no secret writers usually get better the more they write so his next one should be a tour de force.

4.0 out of 5 stars Petey's bookies December 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book. It is a novel about two Ranger outfits, one from the U.S., the other from the U.K. It also encompasses our air force as well. The book moved beautifully and with each "cut" or each new chapter, the author immediately familiarized the reader with who "Dunn" was or who "Cook" was. There was no going back in the book to refresh one's memory. The missions were realistic and exciting and had credibility as we read where they all weren't successful. It's a good strong book about WW11 and we get to meet F.D.R., Churchill, Donovan from the OSS, etc. I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys realistic and captivating war stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Operation Devil's Fire November 15, 2011
Format:Paperback
Operation Devil's Fire is a great story using a blend of historical facts, figures and places combined with an intriguing "what if" situation in WWII. This is the type of book that you make time to finish. The characters are well developed and their back-story is brought quickly into focus. It's exciting and the factual aspects propel the story rather than slow it down. You'll feel like you're shoulder to shoulder with the next man in line hearing distant gunfire and smelling smoke. I continually recommend this book. A very enjoyable read!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for any aviation & WW2 buff September 21, 2012
By MikeB
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have always been fascinated by the advances in aviation technology that took place in Germany during WW2.
I am fortunate enough also to have seen the sole surviving Horten flying Wing which is in storage at a Smithsonian storage facility in Maryland outside Washington DC . When I found a book that blends the story of a prototype six jet Horten Flying Wing, Germany in the latter part of WW2 and a possible German Atomic bomb the story attracted my interest immediately. I read it over the course of two days, the pace of the story along with the characters held my interest from beginning to end. Hollywood should definately consider turning this story into a movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding September 3, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I won't repeat what others have said, but I will add that Mr. Munsterman managed to capture the spirit of the times in his work. The dedication, devotion, duty, and the caring that made the people of the 30's and 40's the "Greatest Generation"

Looking forward to his next work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out standing September 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished the book and I enjoyed it not just because it was a great book but why I think so. First most World War II fiction novels have the main character(s) being a officer(s), not this book the main characters are Sergeants. As a retired Army NCO this made me feel good. The author said at the end of the book the Horton aircraft is real and the German Atomic Bomb program was too. The other thing I enjoyed was the fact that while the two NCO's and their troops were competing against each other, when it came time for a mission they were one team, as it should be. This makes another of the 99 cent books that to me is much better than many that cost me much more. Since this book ends not long after the Normandy landings I hope the author has a sequal in mind. Well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Historical Fiction! October 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a very good book. You are exposed to a set of plans that could give the Germans a stunning victory in World War II. The Americans and British intelligence services have turned up some
disturbing information about Germany gaining the ability to create an atomic bomb. There has also been information about the Nazis being able to construct a super bomber that has the ability to
fly to America. A fear arises that the Nazis could drop an atomic weapon on New York or Washington D.C. The British fear that the Nazis will use the the jet and the bomb on their country. The
allied forces have to enact a plan. They decide to call upon the Army Rangers led by Sgt. Thomas Dunn and the British special forces led by Sgt. Malcolm Sanders. One of these teams is assigned the task of destroying the super jet and the other team is given the job of destroying the nuclear facility. All of this covert activity will occur behind enemy lines. The allied effort is given
little chance of sucess. With odds like these you have the potential for an exciting book. Be sure to read this one.
