With such epic action, characters, plot and dialogue, it's hard to believe that Robinson's work has yet to be filmed' Ian Irvine, Independent. * Independent * 'Brilliantly combines readability [and] pitch-black humour ... A bitterly funny evocation of the lunacies of war' Nick Rennison, BBC History. * BBC History * 'A cracking yarn ... his attention to detail in action scenes cannot be faulted ... 5/5' Tina Moran, Daily Express. * Daily Express * --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
