Tall, handsome, fit, muscular and tanned, Peter Rhodes is the epitome of what every marine should be. His dedication to the Royal Marine Corps and the protection of Crown and Country is second to none, and the solemn Oath of Allegiance he undertook upon joining the corps is kept permanently close to his heart. In this gripping tale of adventure, conflict and engagements (both military and personal) we follow Rhodes as he moves up the ranks and learns new skills, earning many medals along the way. Posted to Malaysia and the Mediterranean, our hero sees plenty of action and comes up against hostile enemies of all kinds. His success on the battlefield is matched only by his prowess in the bedroom and his many steamy encounters make for stimulating reading. The most beautiful of the women he meets, Julie, is destined to become his wife and the mother of his two children, with his son fated to follow in his father's esteemed footsteps, joining the hallowed ranks of the Royal Marines as Peter Rhodes looks back over a distinguished career and an eventful life.
