The second book in Robert Radcliffe’s gripping Airborne Trilogy tells the extraordinary story of a young soldier, a new regiment, and how, together, they changed the course of a war.
“Radcliffe movingly evokes the desperate camaraderie and permanent threat of death… The tribute to courage and endurance remains memorable.” The Sunday Times
“Racliffe writes with knowledge and skill… there is humour, as well as horror, in this fascinating and convincing novel.” The Times
“A born storyteller.” Sunday Telegraph
Radcliffe strips the well-worn genre bare and builds it into something quite unexpected – a historical journey with an all-too human edge.” Scotsman
