Well that one was a downer.
There were some good Doctor quotes, but he played a very passive role in the story. The main characters were the WW2 soldiers, and although they were very interesting characters, they weren't particularly likable in any way. And then *******spoiler******(sort of)****almost all of them die.
A better description for the cover might have been "Bad things happen to soldiers who then analyze their reactions about all the bad things that are happening to them."

Sam and Fitz
The Doctor, Sam and Fitz land in the middle of a battle in WW 2, that's taking place in a series of towns. Something else is involved that is causing hallucinations and stealing dead bodies. This is another downer of a book with violence and despair. The companions, especially Sam are really put through the ringer again. The concept of the aliens is clever, and I liked the way they view the Doctor. A good read.

The very first Who story set in my adopted country, an Eighth Doctor Adventure published in 1999 and set during the Battle of the Bulge around Bastogne. Though to be honest there's not much Belgian about it apart from the weather and the landscape; the extra characters are mainly German and American soldiers, and the rulers of the otherworldly realm reached by Shakespeare in A Midsummer Night's Dream and which is threatening to leak into our world here. So
A nice blend of history and sci-fi, as the Tardis crew lands during WW2 and deals with something that might be aliens, but might be fairies.

David McIntee is one of the best Who writers and this one of his strongest books. A good setting, interesting bad guy and a strong handle on the personalities of the Doctor and his companions.

He can even make Sam into an interesting character, that's how good the guy is.
'It is sad when you loose someone, but even sadder when you can't even feel loss anymore' to paraphrase the Doctors line. And I think that is what this book was leading us up to. We've lost Sam too many times in past books, that we no longer feel the loss; and she's not even gone, another cry of wolf. But, I still keep reading. I guess I'm just addicted.
