A good old fashioned WW2 actioner,
This review is from: The Odin Mission (Hardcover)An attempt at high action fiction from a writer of history and he gives us a solid and enjoyable actioner that we don't see much of nowdays. Almost a WW2 Sharpe, here we see Sgt Jack Tanner in Norway, on the run from German troops who want the secret he does not know he is protecting.
This is fun with a blend of Sharpe and Alistair McLean's less complex war novels.
Enjoyable and a promising start to what I hope is a long running series.

Definitely NOT "a first attempt at fiction" for James Holland. His "The Burning Blue" and "A Pair Of Silver Wings" are very successful novels, and highly recommended.

M J - you are of course correct and I stand rightfully chastised. I've amended the review and many thanks for putting me right.

Likeable review, positive but sparing on stars. Very good.
