The Lieutenant and Leo - Algiers
It is 1960 and the fighting in the French Algerian war has slowed to border conflicts and ambushes. Still, the rebels are unrelenting and so is the French Army. Although the FLN’s major war efforts have ceased, they are still carrying out acts of terrorism by murdering and assassinating members of the French military as well as Algerian Europeans. It appears there is no viable solution to the war and the idea of attaining a peaceful resolution seems like a hopeless dream.
French Army Lieutenant Caitlan Dugas, who has already served one tour in the war-torn country, believes the situation is improving when she reenlists and returns to Algiers to be closer to her lover, Sergeant Leo Durant. But when she and Leo are assigned to a special task force organized to confront the radical terrorists of the FLN who know no bounds with their brutal attacks, both soon realize the depths of their fighting spirits as they must battle against the horrors of terrorism.
In this historical novel, a dedicated French Army officer who returns to war-torn Algiers to be closer to her lover collides with a destiny she never imagined.
