    Widely recognized as the master of the historical spy novel, New York Times best-selling author Alan Furst takes listeners back to the early days of World War II for a dramatic novel of intrigue and suspense.

    Would you try another book from Alan Furst and/or George Guidall?

    Not from Alan Furst but George Guidall is always good.


    What was most disappointing about Alan Furst’s story?

    Too slow to develop with details far beyond reasonable interest - lumbering.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The escape from the burning house.


    Could you see Night Soldiers being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, because they would omit the unnessary details.

  • Operation Mincemeat: How a Dead Man and a Bizarre Plan Fooled the Nazis and Assured an Allied Victory

    Story
    (338)

    As plans got under way for the Allied invasion of Sicily in June 1943, British counter-intelligence agent Ewen Montagu masterminded a scheme to mislead the Germans into thinking the next landing would occur in Greece. This extraordinary operation called for a dead body, dressed as a Royal Marine officer and carrying false information about a pending Allied invasion of Greece, to wash up on a Spanish shore near the town of a known Nazi agent.

    Jack M says: "Better than the movie"
    "A Rare Aborted Reading"
    Overall

    This became one of the few books in my lifetime that I aborted listening and discarded. The reader spoke so fast as to challenge comprehension. I was several chapters into the book and realized that I was still listening to the backgrounds of the people involved.
