The Good: I was fortunate enough to be on Crete for the 50th anniversary of the invasion, visited the battlefields and cemeteries and later was very good friends with some Greeks, including one girl who's grandfather was a leader in the Cretan resistance (and still has a barn full of brand new, 60 year old captured weapons in case the Germans come back.... ). As such I'm a good position to judge Hollands accuracy and he does a very, very good job. Crete is unusual in that the Cretans have made a point of not cleaning up much of the debris of WW2 so a bridge dropped by the Royal Engineers over the Travanites river is still lying where it fell, the hotel I stayed in had a German radar dish lying in the long grass near the beach, old Venetian forts still have bleached wooden signs with 'VERBOTTEN!' written on them and in Heraklion harbour there's a sunken freighter occupying some valuable wharf space with obvious cannon holes in the bridge. The Cretans don't want to forget the battle.Read more ›
A couple of errors which should have been catered for, first in the book he is a Colour Sergeant Major, when in fact he is a Company Sergeant Major. He shows a medal ribbon for gallantry but we never find out what it was awarded for? Norway or France?
In the next book Tanner should be given that Field Commission I keep harping on about, lets face it the men call him sir already. There were segments I found unconvincing but overall a good read, but not the best in the series. The Odin Mission takes the prize, so far!

As with the other books nothing amazing happening here, but a good page turner all the same. Good characters that keep the story plodding along. Good to pass a long night shift.Published 8 months ago by Smally
