They were to be sworn to a blood oath under pain of death, trained in secrecy, turned into an effective commando unit, and sent to fulfill an objective that would mean almost certain death. That wasn’t all. From within that brigade he was to select another group of men, no more than twenty of the most qualified he could find.

This German effort apparently was based on fact. It did not work, but is scary because it really could have been pulled off, with devastating results. I also truly enjoy historical novels and this one did not disappoint.

A second soldier with no ID killed in two days. Wearing a captain’s bars. Five murders in two days. A killer with the nerve to cut open Mallory’s IV and pour that poison into him, then do the same to his own man on his way out before Mallory was even dead

A second soldier with no ID killed in two days. Soft hands, a wedding ring. A new pair of boots, taken off one of the dead GIs at the checkpoint. This was that second officer the MP spotted in the jeep at Elsenborn. A killer with the nerve to cut open Mallory’s IV and pour that poison into him, then do the same to his own man on his way out before Mallory was even dead. Grannit’s eye was drawn to a magnifier mounted on a stand attached to the autopsy table, and he remembered the photograph he’d found in the other man’s boot.

Betty Grable, said Erich Von Leinsdorf. The young MP manning the heavily fortified checkpoint just outside the village gave a cursory glance at the three men in the jeep. Von Leinsdorf tapped Bernie Oster on the shoulder. He handed over a flawless forgery of an American military road pass, detailing their itinerary from Luxembourg City to Vielsalm. A smudged thumbprint obscured the ink around the day, date, and authorizing stamp.

Fall 1944. Germany is losing, and the Americans are starting to hope theyll be home for Christmas. Lieutenant Colonel Otto Skorzeny, "Hitler's Commando," famed for his daring rescue of the imprisoned Mussolini, has just received orders for Operation Greif: He is to assemble a new brigade of 2,000 men, all of whom speak English, and send them behind Allied lines disguised as GIs, where they will wreak havoc in advance of a savage new offensive. And from those men, Skorzeny is to select a smaller group, made up of the twenty most highly skilled commandos fluent in American culture, to attempt an even more sinister mission -- the second objective -- which, if completed, not only would change the course of the war, but would change the course of history.

Filled with real characters and details only recently released by the United States military, The Second Objective is historical fiction at its most pulse-pounding, its most unpredictable, and its most compulsively readable.

I was kind of leery of purchasing this book. I love historical fiction but mostly set in the middle ages. This was an interesting perspective on WWII, very intense. The author's rendering of the Malmedy massacre was horrifying but plausible. This is the first book I have purchased by this author and I was impressed. I am looking forward to reading more of his works.

Frost had written one of my favorite books (The List of Seven) - when he came back to fiction, I was elated. The Second Objective deals with events at WWII around the Battle of the Bulge, and the last ditch effort of the Germans to sabotage the Allies and gain the upper hand by infiltrating German soldiers disguised as American GI's. This German effort apparently was based on fact. It did not work, but is scary because it really could have been pulled off, with devastating results. The Germans had a second objective, zeroing in on an American that could have really made a dent in the war, and our history.
I found it was a great read and told a story that kept you guessing, and you cared about the characters, and what happened to them.
Frost hasn't lost his touch. His writing remains exact, clear and spins a great and satisfying story.
Think you will like his style too.

I bought this book because I love the way Mark Frost writes. I like the language he uses and the way he develops a story. I also truly enjoy historical novels and this one did not disappoint. I was a history major in college and WWII was a period I enjoyed learning about. It was fun to see this spin on what was the most decisive moment in the war. Mark develops characters and stories with great detail and yet it does't interrupt the flow of the story. I love his style and this story was just another example of a person who is excellent at his craft. Well worth the read!!

Wow...I was reading for book club and was dreading since war/spy novels not usually my preference. This one grabbed me and I could barely put it down. I've been telling everyone I see what a great novel. I hope they make into a movie!!!

Not very good to be honest. Very predictable and the characters were rather one dimensional.

The book on CD of Mark Frost's latest novel "The Second Objective" is very well done. The reader is quite competent, and does a good job with the various characters. Of course, the cd version can only be as good or bad as the book on which it is based. I was a BIG fan of Frost's two previous novels, which featured Arthur Conan Doyle in "Sherlock Holmes" pastiches. They were a great mixture of adventure, mystery, and the occult. I was a litle disappointed that for this book Frost decided to go to World War 2 and Otto Skorzeny's plans to assassinate Gen. Eisenhower. The field has been done MANY times. That being said, Frost does a very good job, creating a well paced adventure with some very good characters. Plus, any book that has Otto Skorzeny--even as a supporting character--is OK with me.

A fast paced historical piece set in Europe after the Normandy invasion. Well told, well researched and well developed. Frost makes historical characters come alive and really puts you in the hedgerows in this WWII thriller.
This was a captivating story! I couldn't put the book down! The twists and turns were great. Definitely a page turner!
