Editorial Reviews

Review

The writing is so good that one is unaware of it and what you are conveying comes to the reader with direct impact, like reality itself. --John Hall Wheelock, Editor of Scribner's

Some fine writing is this! --Ann B. Knox, Antietam Review

I was intrigued by the confident blend of ferocity and tenderness. --David Almond, Panurge Magazine (England)

Not liking it. about 20% thru it. the guy seems to be trying to write in a Hemingway style with bits of 'Catch-22' type of craziness.
struggled thru this far, and am not sure I will want to finish it. Too many other good books to read. Can't believe I spent almost10 bucks + on the kindle version for this thing. Am a combat veteran, and appreciate the Special Services from WW2, kudos for your service and experience.

William Davey did a terrific story telling job and his writing was clear and telling. He ably gave hints of the direction his characters were going only to twist things so their destinies changed. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it!

Without doubt this author paints beautiful word pictures, but makes for laborious reading in this genre.
