Publisher's Summary

It's 17 September 1944. The Allies launch the largest airborne offensive in history, delivering 36,000 troops by parachute and glider to the Dutch/German border. In nine days' time, half of them will be casualties of war. Among their number is Theo Trickey, a young paratrooper so dreadfully injured he is not expected to survive. Under the care of Medical Officer Captain Daniel Garland, Trickey is shipped to Germany as a prisoner of war. As Garland slowly nurses him back to health, he discovers that there's something unusual about Trickey, starting with a chance meeting Trickey had with Erwin Rommel before the war....

Well written but I wanted more

I enjoyed this book immensely but was genuinely surprised when it ended. I wanted to know more.
The characters are engaged, the narration is great and the scenarios believable. I will listen to this again

Brilliant

What an insight to the lives of our soldiers during WW11. The narration by Peter Noble is exemplary, speaking seamlessly from character to character. A story not to be missed.

Not a great book

I’ve read all his other novels, and rather enjoyed them. This is the only one I’ve listened to. For me, the story didn’t flow, the descriptions were rather simplistic and childish, and numerous potentially interesting characters disappeared from view prematurely. Not great. Sorry...
