I first read this book, probably back in the 1970s as a young teenager. I thoroughly enjoyed it then. Returning to it 50 or so years later I read it with greater understanding of the history and of human nature. Also having a son who until recently a soldier, with greater understanding of things military. He even did some training at Shornecliffe.
I loved reading it again. I found myself drawn into the storyline and genuinely felt empathy and sympathy with the characters of all nations, but particularly with Dodd.
At the end I actually had a tear in my eye and was genuinely sad to have finished reading it.
I would thoroughly recommend this read to anyone who enjoys stories of derring do with a military theme.
