I am disappointed, the book is not very well written and to me the author is unknown. I have read better accounts about this incredible Second World War raid and success despite such a huge loss of life.
my wife bought me this as a christmas present last year and im finaly getting round to reading it. i enjoy reading about people who make a difference and the story of thier lives. so i was looking forward to reading about mickey burns and how he made his way through the second world war.i couldnt be more disapointed.im half way through the book and his father is talked about more than mickey burns.all it goes on about is who his father is writing to and who is replying.if theres no story about mickey then dont write the book.i will finish the book but its hard work. its not what i expected which is a shame because im sure theres a story there somewhere. it seems like the writer had to find something to pad the book out a bit.
