Product Description

It is 1943 and Captain Mike Blackwood, Royal Marine Commando, is a survivor. Young, toughened, and tried in the hellish crucible of Burma, he labours beneath the weight of tradition and the burden of his own self-doubt. For him, the horizon is not the lip of the trench seen by men of the Corps in the previous war, but the ramp of a landing craft smashing down into the sea, and the fire of the enemy on a Sicilian beach.

Here, tradition is not enough, and Mike Blackwood must find within himself qualities of leadership which will inspire those Royal Marines who are once again the first to land, and among the first to die.

©1999 Douglas Reeman; (P)1999 Bolitho Maritime Productions Ltd

Douglas Reeman works his magic again. This time following the wartime career of Mike Blackwood, the latest in a long line of Royal Marines. Newly gazzeted Captain Mike Blackwood, Royal Marine Commando, is being sent on a number of special missions in the meditaranian sea. This book doesn't have quite as much action as the other books I have read in this set. The book loses none of its shine though, as a very deep love interest more than makes up for the loss. The love interest is very well incorporated into the tale,as Reeman links everything together with his usual seemlessness, to make this instalment of the Blackwood family saga pull you in deeper than Badge of glory or The fist to land(the only others I have read as yet). Its references to the forefathers of the Blackwood family from the other books is a welcome touch especialy if you have read some of them already. I have only given this book three stars as I am a lover of action and this book has a tiny bit less than the others I have read, but I still wouldn't have missed it! Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly great book 27 Dec 2000
By A Customer
This follows the same pattern as a lot of his previous WW2 books, still proving that this formula works, and works well. This book is longer than his average, although this makes it all the more interesting. A worthy read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Up to Douglas Reemans usual standards. 19 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I always enjoy a good war story and Douglas Reeman has always written authentic well researched novels on war at sea. This one is no exception. I have enjoyed the Royal Marine saga mainly because I served 9 years in the RN as a Radio Operator and worked closely with the 'Bootnecks'!!
