Billy Moss is well known for his first SOE book on the Abduction of General Kreipe, Ill Met by Moonlight. This, his second book on his SOE operations, is quite different - a fascinating and powerful book, laced with humour and acute observation. It traces his journey back to Crete after the Kreipe operation, then to Macedonia and the Thailand in the later stages of the War. It reveals the reality of war and of working behind enemy lines, written with excellent style. He became a full time writer after the War and this book shows his natural gifts with the pen. Very well worth the read.
Brilliant book that really gets you in to the mind of an SOE operative. Brave, resilient and with a typically British sense of humour. A great read for anyone interested in behind the lines stories of WW2.A real page turner about a man for whom the phrase " they don't make them like that anymore" was invented
Very enjoyable writing style on a fascinating subject. I particularly related to the parts on Crete and Macedonia and found them insightful and revealing of the author's perspective of the local people and his connection to them.
