Inventive "What if?" plot involving use of an experimental Horten XVIII flying wing to deliver an atomic bomb to America complete with the customary competitive contest between American/British forces to shut the Germans down once and for all. Favorite passage was " Taking a deep breath, he struggled to his feet, then tottered over to the wash basin where he rinsed the blood from his hands. The German's and his own."
Had a good time with this fun read given my interest in WW2 so gets the thumbs up from me!
The characters in the book are well done, but overly detailed. You get to the action pretty quickly. Everything seemed realistic. I enjoyed the author's explanation in a post script as to how he came up with the story and the technical help he received.
This is a WW II special ops book covering two missions into occupied France and Germany. The first mission is to make an attach in the Calais area as a decoy before the actual cross-channel invasion at Normandy. The second sends the teams to knock out the atomic weapons research lab in Germany and also to destroy the Horton flying wing bomber. The team consists of an American and a British group with each of them taking a part of the overall mission. The two missions do have a small overlap. All-in-all it is an excellent, well researched WW II action tale.
Tomorrow I am ordering his other book for my Kindle.
My only complaint, minor though it may seem to some, is the quality of the editing. It boggles my mind that a book whose plot deals almost exclusively with airplanes could possibly keep using the word "hanger" for an airplane's storage facility. How does this happen? Every time the misspelled word appeared (too often to count) I would cringe.
If you can get past the mistakes, the books are enjoyable.
The first novel about Sgt. Dunn, with a bias towards his invincibility. Some of the text is repetitive and "filling". Apart from that, it had a plot, which one expected - and, was somewhat far-fetched. The capture of a German aircraft and the unscarred evacuation from enemy territory left a lot to the imagination. Well; I guess, that is what novel writers set out to do - ie; stimulation of interest.
Overall, my Husband thoroughly enjoyed the read. He had already read the 2nd novel, abut Sgt. Dunn.
