Another chapter in this brilliant series. Can't wait for the next but it will be sad when I finally set that one down. Perhaps I'll just read straight through again as I am wont to do with good books.
I've read quite a few of these type book (including the first two, 'Stand to' and 'Advance to Contact') and the story line just improves, its a very good mix of spy/soldier/global view on a WW3 that fortunately never was but this tale is all too believable (computers being hacked etc) and you definitely get the soldiers view of combat and are not spared the grim truths and mistakes in the 'fog of war'It is also refreshing to see the British forces (Army and Navy) get a good story line and not just supporting the Americans as bit part players. (I found the shameful treatment of the returning British solders from the prev book disgusting but all too believable!) The mix of the story threads is about right. The themes switch from the fighting in Europe to China to Russia to Australia to the Kremlin to the Whitehouse to London but the story line is heavy on the combat and where the action is at and this is where its at its stand-out best. There's enough 'tech' to keep the story believable but more human story to keep you reading - you REALLY want to see the story conclude in volume 4 'Crossing the Rubicon'. I can't wait.
Where it lets itself down is in the non-existent proof-reading before publication. There are far too many errors in spelling, grammar and duplicated or missing words. I found that very irritating because it made me wonder every time I came across a sentence in which I had to make some mental adjustment myself if the author had paused for a tea break at that point, or incompletely deleted something that he had previously written. A decent edit would be rewarding for the reader. One or two mistakes, even in professionally published books, are understandable but this series contains far too many, which is a shame. But for that I would probably have given it another star. One thing which does come through loud and clear is the author's contempt for politicians and their attitude towards the armed services and the police, both of whom they then rely on to clear up their mess. In that I have complete sympathy.
On the whole an enjoyable read if you can live with the mistakes.
Yes there are minor errors of technical jargon but who the hell knows every element of military hardware from not only the UK military inventory but our NATO allies as well, when add those of the former Warsaw Pact as well as the PRC.
I like the characters, and not surprisingly some of the bad guys can catch you empathising with them.
Andy, you’re doing a good job of keeping me entertained and if anyone else buys your books because of my review, I am sure they will enjoy them too.
