Customer Reviews

Such fun! I don't know why, but 'Allo 'Allo kept popping into my mind whilst reading this . . . Naval Office Ian Lemming likes the finer things in life - including women; but the latest female in his life isn't his usual type. She's a young female agent heading to France on her latest mission. Unfortunately for him, the landing doesn't go quite as planned and he finds himself stranded in France wearing only the clothes he stands up in (standard British issue). Of course as a male officer, he considers himself vastly superior . . . The author has pitched this one just right. The seriousness of all those who risked their life during WWII in France, especially those who are part of the Resistance, is upheld throughout this novel while the relationship between Lemming and the young agent provides so much entertainment! Male chauvinism was rife during the war, it's just how things were but women were beginning to prove that there was nothing they couldn't do and, of course, officers thought they were definitely a cut above the man - and woman - in the street. The laughs are plentiful and I giggled my way through some excellent writing. I read a fair bit of fiction about WWII and this is definitely a lighter take on it. An easy flowing book which will take you through plenty of ups and downs, ensuring you hold your breath and feel your heart pounding every now and then. If you have a sense of humour, then I recommend this and happily give it 4.5*.
