About the Author
Lazlo Ferran: Exploring the Landscapes of Truth. Educated near Oxford, during English author Lazlo Ferran’s extraordinary life, he has been an aeronautical engineering student, dispatch rider, graphic designer, full-time busker, guitarist and singer, recording two albums. Having grown up in rural Buckinghamshire Lazlo says: “The beautiful Chiltern Hills offered the ideal playground for a child’s mind, in contrast to the ultra-strict education system of Bucks.” Brought up as a Buddhist, he has travelled widely, surviving a student uprising in Athens and living for a while in Cairo, just after Sadat’s assassination. Later, he spent some time in Central Asia and was only a few blocks away from gunfire during an attempt to storm the government buildings of Bishkek in 2006. He has a keen interest in theologies and philosophies of the Far East, Middle East, Asia and Eastern Europe. After a long and successful career within the science industry, Lazlo Ferran left to concentrate on writing, to continue exploring the landscapes of truth.

I have to admit that I am a sucker for books which involve vintage aircraft. For the most part I enjoyed this book, even though in places it did read a bit like the old commando comics that I used to read when growing up. I did think that the characters were quite well thought out, but I ended up feeling that there were some threads left hanging. The ending did feel a little rushed but perhaps this has been done deliberately for a sequel. I, for one, certainly hope that this is the case
If you like a good rip-roaring, edge of your seat adventure, then try this.
Turning his back on the occult and sci-fi, Lazlo Ferran has brought us a relatively straight forward World War II action adventure with a some romance thrown in for good measure. The flying sequences are where this books shines, tense, exciting and dramatic, they pull up what could so easily have turned into a dreary story of a love triangle between the main characters (I'm not a fan of romance novels). At points it can get a little technical, but most of that is explained eventually, if not right away and it all seems pretty accurate too. I was unsure of some things, so I looked them up.
The plan of the titular Attack is not something I'd heard of before, but they tried lots of different things out of desperation at the time, so I guess that it's at least plausible.
Overall I really enjoyed this book. It's not too short, not too long and an easy read. I hope that Lazlo Ferran continues to write more grounded/realistic stories like this as it certainly appears to be where his talent lies.
The aerial combat sequences are excellently written and kept me on edge throughout the book. Even though Attack Hitler's Bunker is a work of fiction, I view it as an outstanding dedication to the men and women who risked everything to preserve our freedoms.
