I have just finished reading Saving Hitler and I am grinning from ear to ear.
This is a breathlessly fast story that should be nominated for a World Record for the most action sequences in a short novel.
Reading it evoked a strong sense of nostalgia in me for when I was a child, watching war films with my brothers.
Where Eagles Dare, Guns of Navarone, Dirty Dozen, The Eagle Has Landed: name your poison, this is more than an homage, it is in many ways simply a modern rewrite (even more so than th

It's close to the end of the second world war and the Germans are losing. In Britain retired SOE operative Maddox is recalled to complete one last mission, helping one of Hitler's doubles defect to the allies. From the outset, however, it becomes clear that there's more to this task than meets the eye.

With a complex plot and fast moving action this is a thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat all the way through.

Sadly it's lacking the attentions of a good copy editor. There are far

Strategic Plan

Nice twists and turns in this WWII tale involving Americans, British, and Russian agents. A race against time as each group, including the Germans, try to fufill their agendas involving Hitler and a look alike. The author leads you to believe the missions consist of a specific end, but then you are given clues that assist you to understand the true purpose of each mission. Nice bits of humor placed throughout the story.

Good fun read that follows closely in the footsteps of Blood Red Sea.

The plot is exciting and one of those that makes you think 'What if history had happened like that?' which is something I like. I am a comic book fan so the greater focus on action in this one made it really enjoyable. By the end my head was spinning.

I think that although it helps to have read the first in the series you would not be too lost if you picked this one up as it explains most of what you need to know from the earli

Once you get over the startling similarities with the film "Where Eagles Dare" this is an exceptionally well written and fast moving book. I'm not a great fan of war stories but I was soon well into this one and was very glad I had finally decided to start reading it as I'd had it on my kindle for a while. Maddox is a wholly believable character and as the plot twists and turns you will find yourself unable to put this book down. Definitley well worth reading, highly recommended.
