Publisher's Summary

When Belize is invaded by a powerful neighbour, it's Britain that must spring to the defence of this old outpost of empire. But intervening in distant Central America will test the limits of the former colonial power. And in the end the outcome will turn on the skill, boldness and heart-bursting bravery of a handful of British forces already in country....

A gripping fictional war story

Despite a slow start, while setting up the character back stories, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. So much so that I have purchased the other 3 books by the same author.

Superb

Once again Mike Lunnon Wood has written such an engrossing book that it is impossible to turn away from it! The interest in the individual characters and story line become totally absorbing. Well performed by John Telfer with such a superb range of accents, pathos and clarity. Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect and would recommend to all!

Thoroughly enjoyable

Again a nice easy listen, great characters but along the same old boys own adventure line and some of the characters come out of the updated forties - but that doesn't actually detract from the overall enjoyment after all that's what the book's all about. All of this is enhanced by a great performance by John Telfer.

As true to life as ever you will get .

Every soldier takes on a life of their own, the true to life banter and rivalry of the varies arms is laid bare. The comradship and pride in what they do, is brought to life in all its wrore truth. its like being back in uniform.

Great listen

I’ve always enjoyed military stories and after reading the reviews of this book thought I’d give it a shot. I was not disappointed. It’s not a difficult read but the characters are well developed and you get to know them as the plot unfolds. I recommend this book to everyone as it has a bit of everything but especially to those who like war stories.

Superb book

One of the best military stories I have ever listened to. The authors deep understanding of military strategy, tactics, weapons and units makes the characters and story completely believable. There is no Rambo-esque glamorisation of war. A light is shone on the horror and human tragedy of military confrontation, whilst recognising the courage of the men and women who serve in all the armed services. Highly recommended.

A cracking book.

Yet again the third book lives up to the standard of the other two. Each book is a stand alone story so can be listened too in any order, the story’s are superb. As before, the characterisations are wonderful; with you growing attached to them as the story flows.
A great book that will have you extending the sleep timer at least once.
