Review Text "Plenty of action The whole is intelligently structured so that this is absorbing and thoughtful as well as tense and exciting" show more.
The Second World War is often seen as the last war where there was a clear distinction between good and evil and it is easy to be against the wrong, Nazi side. There is, however, a huge grey area that has been explored by many writers: In the Jack Tanner books that grey area is a bit lost, which is my only gripe. The Jack Tanner series is a great WW II action series with plenty of historical detail and I'm looking forward to reading the next book. May 26, Andy R rated it liked it.
Had the usual historical accuracy that makes you feel like you've been dropped into the action. However, I thought the plot offered little different from the previous two books, and it descended into a series of somewhat predictable deeds of derring do from our protagonist. Oct 29, Jon Ellis rated it liked it. Good story if a little one dimensional. Enjoyed the read but not really a very satisfying completion. Great Yet another success I could not put it down looking forward to reading the next Jack Renner adventure. Jan 03, Huw Rhys rated it it was ok.
James Holland writes good history books. He can also write decent novels.

This one unfortunately falls between the two stools. Knowing James Holland writes good history books. Knowing what happens at the end of "Titanic" doesn't necessarily spoil the film - sadly, the phenomenon doesn't really work in this context. Not an arduous read, quite an enjoyable one at times - but as the whole book is not really one thing or another, it did leave me feeling at the end of it that I wondered why I'd really bothered.
Shame, probably the first of James Holland's books that I haven't really, really enjoyed. It won't put me off buying and reading the next one when it arrives. The third of Jams Holland's Jack Tanner series, and the best so far. This is a great page-turning, bullet-spewing WW2 action-adventure. Set on Crete in May we see how through poor decisions a potentially winning situation huge amounts of German Fallschirmjager [paratroops] were defeated became another Allied withdrawal as the Germans got the upper hand and occupied the island.
And not content with fighting the Germans, CSM Tanner falls out with one of the Cretan kapitans, Alopex, each threatening to kill the other! Feb 12, Wolf Archer rated it it was amazing. Every book in this series has become immensely gripping. If you have work the following morning I do not recommend picking any book up from the Jack Tanner series the evening before. By the time I looked up it was daylight.

As each book advances you feel the group getting closer and Tanner still gets himself into the same troublesome situations that make this series so wonderfully worth reading. My guilty pleasure are these Jack Tanner books, by James Holland. As one of the reviewers says on the back of the book, 'Tanner is a chiselled protagonist straight out of the pages of the old Commando comics Just about to order the next one, Hellfire. Aug 05, Andrew rated it really liked it Shelves: Definitely action-packed and an interesting read about the Crete Campaign, which I did not know much about.
Love Tanner and his sidekick, Stan Skyes! Can't wait for many more in this series!! Jul 06, Fraser Cook rated it really liked it.
