The sixth book in a thrilling, historical fiction series based on real events—perfect for readers of the I Survived series! In this latest adventure, follow a female military officer’s brave escape from a Nazi fire in Libya.

June 1942. In the hot desert military camp of Bir Hakeim, Free French Officer Susan Travers was one of few women at the battlefront of World War II. German Nazis had surrounded her troop. With their forces outnumbered and low on ammo, the French general gave a shocking order. They were going to breakout in the middle of the night—crossing through dangerous minefields and enemy territory—to reach their British allies. And Susan would have to steer them to safety.

Though Officer Travers was an expert driver, thousands of lives were at risk. But she didn’t face rejection and break gender barriers to take a back seat now. Her country needed her to fight and win.
