2.0 out of 5 stars Operation Certain Death, 8 Aug 2006
Undoubtedly well-researched but the verbal interchanges between the British soldiers are at best irritating and at worst, wholly embarrassing (at times I had to skip full paragraphs). If you have an interest in this event and the history surrounding it then this book is definately worth considering, but only if you can tolerate the constant phonetics used to portray regional accents.

3.0 out of 5 stars For Queen and Country, 11 July 2006
This review is from: For Queen and Country (Paperback)
Sorry to buck the trend but this book is a fairly average example of the genre. The content is ok but the author's simplistic writing style borders on patronising. There are far better alternatives available, such as Close Quarter Battle by Mike Curtis or Immediate Action by Andy Mcnab.
