Excerpt from the book:
“We don’t stand a snowman’s chance in the Sahara.” Sam shook his head dejectedly as he peeked through the lace curtains from his first floor bedroom window.
“How many are heading your way?” Alan asked as he stood at the window next to Sam’s.
“About a platoon of SS stormtroopers, and they look as mean as hell,” Sam answered. “How many are heading your way?”
“About a platoon of SS stormtroopers and they also look as mean as hell,” Alan echoed as he peered through the lace curtains at his window.
“Same here,” Alice answered from the downstairs living room. “We’re outnumbered and outgunned.”
“So what else is new?” Sam guffawed grimly. “We’re always outnumbered and outgunned, Alice.” He carefully looked out of the window again. “The Huns are taking hostages. What’s the current rate of exchange, Al?”
“One hundred hostages are to be executed for every German soldier that’s killed,” Alan answered.
