A terrific thriller. Although it helps reading Simon Conway's previous novel Rage first, since it has a lot of the same characters, this one does stand on its own.
Having studied English literature in Edinburgh and having served in the British Army with the Black Watch and the Queen's Own Highlanders and having worked for the HALO Trust clearing landmines in Cambodia, Kosovo, Eritrea and Abkhazia, Simon Conway has more than the necessary knowledge and skills to rock your world with yet another explosive story about the men and women risking everything to defend our nations.

A short synopsis will follow below. I will start with the most important information first: This film is cut! It is in a full screen 4:3 format whereas the original theater version is 2.35:1

11 little stories by worlds most beloved author of children's books: A.A.Milne(Pooh), illustrated by the dutch illustrator Henriette Willebeek Le Mair. Originally published in 1925, it is the only collaboration of these two greats in the world of timeless children's books. For the grownups it's a wonderful reading experience to discover a less known side of Millne's writing which is so lovingly accompanied by the 11 beautifully reproduced original illustrations of Willebeek Le Mair. For the children there are these completely different stories which will make them want to be read and read again and again. A timeless masterpiece!
