Product Description

When Professor Dortmund died in 1938, the work he left was incomprehensible. He might as well have been doing his scientific research in code. Now Daniel Mond, a young Cambridge academic, is in postwar Gottingen to try to unravel the Dortmund papers.
Also in Gottingen is Major Giles Glastonbury s 10th Sabre Squadron of Earl Hamilton s Light Dragoons-maintaining the occupation and preparing for nuclear war.
As Mond pries open the Pandora s Box left by Dortmund, both he and the soldiers of the Sabre Squadron find themselves in unimaginable danger...
His whole sequence is marvellously witty, intelligent and entertaining SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
With this new novel, the sabre squadron, Raven takes a remarkable step forward in the ranks of contemporary writers
An excellent piece of story-telling, crammed with comedy, suspense and action
In this Panther edition, the novels of the Alms for Oblivion sequence are arranged in chronological order, though each is a self-contained story. The Sabre Squadron, set in 1952, is the third in the series.
