Another great tale from Iain Gale. I have not found fault with a single book he has written. While the read its self is different from some of the more main stream writers in Historical Fiction, its is just that different, not better not worse. The action is measured and at times graphic, the characters are fun and real and at the same time a slight amalgamation of what we would expect the sterotype character of the period to be.
This particular period of history is crammed full of great heroics, dire deeds and battles, and thats just how this book reads.
I really enjoyed it and will be looking to pre-order the next Iain Gale.
Product Description : from back of Book
The sequel to THE BLACK JACKALS is set in the turmoil of the eastern Mediterranean in 1941, with the Brits struggling to hold their line in Greece against the powerful German and Italian forces.
Peter Lamb and his men are halted in their retreat to England and forced to join the British forces holding the pass at Thermopylae. But their tough experiences in France have not prepared the Jackals for the savage hand to hand fighting through the mountains. Lamb's limited knowledge of command leaves him unsure about how to organise the New Zealand and Greek partisan soldiers who are added to his troop.
When they land in Crete, Lamb becomes suspicious of some of the civilians who, on fleeing from Greece, have taken cover with the Jackals. Yet he knows that facing the awesome German paratroopers for the first time, combined with the desperate battle to hold Crete at all costs, will force him to find a way to work alongside any support he is offered. His new troop will be made up of partisans, allied irregulars - including Evelyn Waugh - and Spanish volunteers.
JACKALS' REVENGE paints a brilliant picture of the turbulent theatre of war.
Yet again Gale sets the scene for a really good adventure within a historical context.
Having been to Crete, and to some of the places mentioned in the book, this was of particular interest to me and didn't disappoint. Well written in Gale's easy style , I would recommend this to anyone who likes this type of story. I look forward to the next instalment in the adventures of Capt Lamb and the Jackals

Historically OK, the Colonel bit was laid on a bit thick.
Hope others coming are more action based
