It has the feel of something quite big and satisfying... Muchamore's voice is fresh and direct. (Daily Telegraph)
Muchamore's plain, punchy, often funny style ... is highly effective... This clever, tense novel is a great way of getting bored boys interested in history. (Amanda Craig, The Times)
This book was un-put-downable. It gripped me from start to finish, and was just as good as the CHERUB series, if not better! (Aaron, 14, First News)
Gripping and compelling (- Carousel)
An awesome book... absolutely action-packed. (Daily Record)

Just as an instance:-
In the earlier books SS?Gestapo officers were given military not SS ranks (happily in the later books this was rectified)
In one book we had a captain, in army uniform visiting the establishment. An army captain is lower in rank than a naval commander, so would not have been called sir or saluted first by Henderson.
.The sergeant who was in charge of parachute training was called sir by a lot of people. NO! Maybe the 'kids' would have called him sir but anyone else would have addressed him as sergeant, sarge or sar'nt.
The sergeant who trained the 'kids' as snipers was referred to as an Air Force sergeant. He would have been an Army Air Force sergeant.
Little details but as I said - a little research would have avoided this.
I was not keen on the many references to thrashings and to even suggest that Henderson would have authorised a 'birching' of one boy by another just a short time before a mission is kind of ridiculous. The only related issue that I found slightly amusing was when Marc was caned on his bare backside by a tiny nun for fighting.
All in all, though, I really enjoyed the whole HB series, and was sorry when there were no more to read.. .
These stories raised many difficult topics and I needed to spend time discussing such things as drug dealing, human trafficking, prostitution and abuse, but now (age 15) my son is a keen journalist; already getting work published in local papers, and intends to do politics and sociology A Levels next year. I am very grateful to Robert Muchamore for writing these books. We pre-ordered this one of course. My son starts the series from the beginning every time a new book is released so that he can immerse himself in the whole story every time. This is his favourite author.
