There is obviously a lot of breathless and vivid action, there's always something going on grabbing your attention. I found it hard to put down but also learning something new about these unheralded heroes. It is hard not to admire the bravery of these men who despite the obvious risks still put themselves forward to fulfil this important role. Generally I found this a well written book and whilst I have nothing to compare with it, on the face of it, it appears well researched. I enjoyed the depiction of Willy and most of the other characters even if, with the exception of the balloon units, the British, and in particular their officers, don't come out of it terribly well. I particularly enjoyed Churchill's cameo. Willy comes across as a cross as a it of a James Bond figure and there is even a beautiful woman for the requisite romantic element, but if I have one complaint, it is that there is just perhaps one deed of daring-do too many. However, if you are looking for a piece of escapism where you can perhaps learn something new then you could do far worse than this.
