A hero uncovered, 31 Jan. 2007
This is a masterful book and a gripping and moving story told with a particularly engaging and occasionally ironical style. The author has had the advantage of access to documents from both German and English sources and there is great attention to detail. It is nonetheless very readable. All the key components of the battle and the central characters are carefully analysed. One, Park, towers over everyone as the true hero. Less creditable performances emerge from others. For me it was a book I simply could not put down.
