An excellent book ... A story, based on fact, about the X Troop during the 2nd World War who dedicated their lives for the protection and survival of Great Britain and the western civilised world. A wonderful and well written book moving from one tense moment to the next ..... the author maintains the suspense throughout the book. This is a book for those who are interested in untold tales of the 2nd World War.
