Fall, 1943: The Allied advance up the Italian peninsula has ground to a halt and the prospect of taking Rome before Christmas seems more distant than ever. In their first action since Salerno, First Lieutenant Sam Taft and the soldiers of Able Company are sent to wrest a lonely stretch of road from the German defenders. The Italians call it Highway 6, but the boys of the Texas Gun Club know it as Victory Road. As Sam slugs it out in the valley, somewhere beyond the highway high up in the moutains Captain Perkin Berger, Sam's cousin, struggles against harsh elements and murderous German intelligence agents in his quest to be the first American into San Pietro. Victory Road is the second book in the award-winning Texas Gun Club series.
