A beautifully written other side to war stories,
This review is from: Under the Sun (Paperback)
Kerr-Smiley shows another more compassionate and human element to WW2 whose fiction is largely concerned with land combat in Europe, so the South Pacific was as refreshing as he describes it. One of the most beautifully written books I've had the pleasure of reading for a while, you bobble along with Strickland and find yourself crashing to an end like the waves he so eloquently describes. Really worth the read, he has somewhat changed my views of WW2, focusing on individual events that represent the war as a whole. Just go and read it!
