Task Force Dragon by Michael W. Romanowski is a story of war, intrigue, deceit, and death. In early 1945, World War II is coming to an end. However, the Allies are not always on the best of terms, particularly the USSR whose plans go far beyond the defeat of the Axis Powers. US Army Captain Phillip Vogel, an intelligence officer, after barely surviving the Battle of the Bulge, is summoned for a special mission mainly because of his combat experience and his flawless German, learned from immigrant grandparents from Austria.

The mission, Operation Primrose, is two-fold; the first part being to secure a high ranking German intelligence officer that wants to defect and help end the war. Several teams have tried to get this done, but all have died or vanished. The second part is to rescue Americans held in a prisoner-of-war camp near where the German officer is currently residing. Unfortunately for Vogel, there is a lot more going on than first meets the eye, including lies and hidden agendas. And then there’s the fact that someone is working for the enemy. Only one question remains: can Vogel successfully complete this mission or could it be his last?

I enjoyed reading Task Force Dragon by Michael W. Romanowski. The author has put together a strong story filled with all the necessary action, plot changes, and twists to keep the reader fully involved. His plot moves along at a rapid pace, but the added deceit and intrigue keep the reader asking what comes next. I also found it very refreshing to read a book about war without excessive gore, sexual situations, and explicit language. The action sequences were very well done. Nice work. Highly recommended.
