I really like James Holland s Jack Tanner series This is the fourth book in the series and it brings him to the North African desert James Holland uses real WW II events and drops Jack Tanner in the middle of them We learn about the tactics, the battles, the hardship, conflicted loyalties, the cock ups and the victories Sometimes James Holland tries to explain a bit too much in my opinion But then again, I ve read a lot about the Second World War fiction and non fiction and I know that th I really like James Holland s Jack Tanner series This is the fourth book in the series and it brings him to the North African desert James Holland uses real WW II events and drops Jack Tanner in the middle of them We learn about the tactics, the battles, the hardship, conflicted loyalties, the cock ups and the victories Sometimes James Holland tries to explain a bit too much in my opinion But then again, I ve read a lot about the Second World War fiction and non fiction and I know that things weren t black and white Sometimes people on your own side were worse than the enemy.Anyway, this series is a cross between adventure and history and highly enjoyable, even with the amount of killing and dying in it There are very few writers producing anything of note for WW2 fiction reader at present, there are certainly very few who are doing it this well Guy Saville and James Delingpole being the only notable exceptions As usual the books are well written with a pace that picks the reader up and carries you along with our heroes, the action is real and visceral, its written with a real passion for the subject and the characters But with all this it still contains that element of boys own adventure tha There are very few writers producing anything of note for WW2 fiction reader at present, there are certainly very few who are doing it this well Guy Saville and James Delingpole being the only notable exceptions As usual the books are well written with a pace that picks the reader up and carries you along with our heroes, the action is real and visceral, its written with a real passion for the subject and the characters But with all this it still contains that element of boys own adventure that readers of Commando, Victor and Battle would have come to love and expect from their war stories, Heroes can still be Heroes here without all the sordid parts of the real world crowing in, leaving it real but idealistic at the same time.Another excellent story from James HollandRecommended Parm Product Description from back of book August, 1942.North Africa The desert war hangs in the balance Although their retreat has finally been halted, morale in the British Army is at rock bottom When the commander of the Eighth Army, General Gott, is killed, it seems that foul play is at work An impenetrable Axis spy circuit could be compromising any hope the Allies have of stemming the Nazi tide.Jack Tanner, recovering from wounds in a Cairo hospital, is astonished to receive a battlefield commission which will propel him into a very different world when he returns to action Fit once , he finds himself facing the full onslaught of Rommel s latest offensive.In its aftermath, Tanner and his trusty sidekick Sykes are recruited to work behind the Axis lines in a desperate attempt to take the fight to the Nazis But the murky world of subterfuge, deceit and murder they find themselves in is a million miles away from the certainties of the battlefield and somehow they must discover who they can trust in the cat and mouse world of counter espionage
