Yeah, probably. And I'm pleased to announce that I'm one third of the way through my novel!!!! Thus far, the reader discovers that Tank is being questioned and being tried as a traitor. through his recollection, you discover Tank and three other marines were sent on a Black Op in the Peleliu Islands during the battle of Palau. After being captured and tortured, one of his team is killed and they're eventually shipped off to a prison camp in Cuba. There, Tank eventually escapes after meeting "Victor Reznov" and freeing another one of his previous teamates, after losing yet another. Tank forms a brotherhood with the remaining marine, but has to leave him behind after joining another battallion outside Cuba, where the General in charge there turns out to be a traitor himself and kills all of his own men in an ambush except Tank and said ally. Tank, now thinking he's been deemed a traitor, then sets out to find a way to Germany, where he saw a strange location on a Nazi map, marked with a red Z. To do so, Tank takes the help of a Cuban dealer named "Gato" who "sells" him as an escaped Jew he had seen earlier that was killed. Tank is now taking torture on a German boat, waiting to arrive at a slave camp in Germany and escape into the standard population. This book is packed with violence, gore, brotherhood, betrayal, language, and sweet sweet badassery.
