4.0 out of 5 stars rollicking good read, 11 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Loyal Spy (Paperback)
this is a wide-ranging, rollicking good read which could do with a Thomas Cook Travel Guide to remind us just which continent we are in now. I was surprised at one time for the action to be taking place just around the corner from where I live in Whitechapel.

3.0 out of 5 stars a novella, 11 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Kaiser's Last Kiss (Paperback)
a slight story, but not lacking emotional weight. Its odd choice of POV (an SS officer) is unusual and I'm not sure if it works, but it at least does no harm.

4.0 out of 5 stars a real spy, 11 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted to read something about the real life of a spy rather than a work of fiction. This is it. It is ordinary and extraordinary at the same time. The inner conflicts of a serving agent resonate as credibly as can be.

4.0 out of 5 stars a credible soldier, 11 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a strange book with its mundane quotidien of the daily tedium of a soldier's life which contrasts in a moment with extreme danger and violence. It is elegaic in the sense that it is all about leaving.

As a Catholic Irish Republican this was a real insight into the mindset of an english soldier and a reminder that the enemy are not bogeymen.
