As ever this is a sympathetic account of men who fall from the skies to fight and die, with his respect for these men of steel shining through. If you have never read one of Kershaw's books then this is a good place to start, as it is written in a very readable style.
I must comment, however, on the terrible cover, as it makes the reader think it is going to be yet another SAS masturbatory fest! It is nothing of the sort and I can only imagine the publishers insisted on it to tap into such a market. In my opinion Kershaw is above and beyond such cheap and tacky attempts at publicity.
