Book Description

8 July 2010
Paul Mitchell spends his days researching WWI; his quiet life in the library can hardly be in greater contrast to the carnage he studies. Until, that is, the present catches up with him in the shape of Dr Audley of the MOD. Why does Audley want to know what really happened during the battle for Hameau Ridge on the Somme in 1916? The answer is complex and dangerous...

In David Audley and Paul Mitchel and subsequently other players Anthony Price has created an ordered conflict of imense proportions. Throughout the series of Novels it slowly becomes clear that the expected roles of father figure and son are not filled.
This is the first novel in which Paul is introduced to Audley. It is a novel which uses its authors knowlege of the Great War to propel the protagonists to an unusual and attention grabbing conclusion.
This and the other books in the series have given me great pleasure; Mr. Price has captured the mindset of the subaltern of the mid 20th century, the warrior of the Great War and the civil servant of the late 20th century (and no caps for those beggars) with skill, wit, and some not insubstantial humour.
Should you even hazard a guess as to the "Shaws of Tripoli" are, or even know the lyrics to "The Halls of Montezuma" then you may appreciate Mr. Price.
Sadly I have never met him to say thankyou for all the pleasure he has given me.

My personal favourite of Price's Cold War espionage thrillers, but then I prefer the First World War to the Second (read it to see what I mean).
Make sure you read the series in the right order, or you'll be terminally confused - the personalities and the events are as complex as real life, and the present is dictated by the past, both the individual's and deeper history

5.0 out of 5 stars Best starting point for Price. 9 Feb 2010
By Sejanus
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was introduced to Anthony Price a long time ago, when the BBC adapted "Other Paths to Glory" for their Radio 4 Saturday afternoon slot.

I find this to be Price's most readable novel, being much more straightforward than a lot of his other work. The characters are clear cut, the plot makes sense and there's a good pace throughout.

Too many of Price's books are cluttered with pages of what seems to be filler material about the characters' confusion. This one has none of that and moves forward at a grand pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absorbing historical crime thriller 1 July 2008
I don't often buy "bargain" books, but this was an excellent exception. A smoothly written and enlightening historical story. If you've finished Robert Harris, you might look here, although the political side is played down rather.
