not really NEW, but well worth reading,
This review is from: Fortunes of War: The Balkan Trilogy (New York Review Books Classics) (Paperback)
I read this book back when Kenneth Branagh was still married to Emma Thompson. The two of them made a mini-series version of this for Masterpiece Theater that was wonderful, and I hunted down the book back then. It was wonderful also, an engrossing story of the WWII in the Balkans. ALso the story of a couple of British newlyweds far from home. I recommend it AND the video Fortunes of War. Glad this is back in print, although I still have my copy from before.

Stephen O. Murray says:
Most of the BBC miniseries "Fortunes of War" derives from Manning's Levant Trilogy rather than her Balkan Trilogy.
