A stunning and all action continuity from where 'Breakthrough' left off?

3.0 out of 5 stars Well written alternative history.
A good series with strong characters, the only thing that stops me giving it 4 stars are the maps and the list of where each unit comes in the order of battle, this is more for a glossary as it breaks the flow of the narrative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fire in the hold ...., 8 Feb 2013

This review is from: Stalemate (The Red Gambit Series Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
A stunning and all action continuity from where 'Breakthrough' left off? This latest volume takes the reader into devastating and intrigue fuelled battle of epic proportions that leaves you breathless as the chapters unfold? Some scenes left me with my fingers trembling as I turned the pages, such was the intensity of the action! The 'Red Gambit' series has been my find of the decade as far as reading goes and well done to the author for maintaing a very real and engaging storyline.

As this series has developed and the characters have come to the fore, the author weaves an extremely well considered story that leaves you stunned with some of the twists and turns that come along. Stalemate was brilliant to put it simply and once again takes you on a roller coaster of a ride through the battlefields, foxholes and HQ's of war torn Europe where East clashes with West.

Move over Mr Clancy there's a new 'Storm' in town and I can't wait for the next continuation of what has been an excellent read from this author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking, 3 Feb 2013

This review is from: Stalemate (The Red Gambit Series Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
From the opening chapter to the closing sentence, the action is non stop. This is the 3rd book in the series and the pace is unrelenting. The battle scenes are second to none, though some people (not me) may find them disturbing. Anyone who loves a good war book will love this. The best thing is that there are 3 more books to come in the series. My only question is when is Otto Skorzeny going to appear.

Just like the previous books in the series, this was a great fun and entertaining read. The pacing is excellent and the action sequences well crafted.

It seems strange to mention 'research' when you are commenting on AH - however, I really do appreciate when authors take the time to get their facts right.

Looking forward to part 4.

The best alternative end of WW2 series I have read. If you are interested in this genre and have not read Colin Gee then I highly recommend it

Love this series. Looking forward to the next one, all too real. I love alternative history, this in my humble opinion ranks with the best. Yes there are small mistakes etc but as an avid reader on Kindle I have seen much worse. If you like this try "England Expects (Empires Lost)" or "The Whale Has Wings". So many good alternative history books to read! Fine author and so much detail in his books, will be patiently waiting for the next installment.

Superb read, just like the last one. Can't put it down (or should I say switch it off, as I have it on Kindle)
