    Story
    "Excitement & history stretched a tiny bit too far"

    This is a beautifully written book with rich characterisation and a compelling plot. I really wanted to know what happened to the two main protagonists but I found the tale a little overlong and at times I felt it dragged. However the first class narration by Robert Powell kept me going and I was glad I did.
    This is a tale of war and adversity and the search for meaning and truth but it does not preach - it sweeps us along a thrilling path to a satisfying conclusion.
    Well worth the effort.

    "Good war story"

    I found the story line to be gripping for most of the time. I just felt that it was a little drawn out. Liked the way all the different characters came together.

    "A fun, easy listen, very enjoyable"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This isn't a great book. It's a Summer kind of read - fun, well-written, easy to listen


    Have you listened to any of Robert Powell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed his narration

    "An epic story above all"

    This book is a complex story with three strands. Each could be a tale on its own. The details have been very carefully researched and reflect much of what happened during the time of the book. A long listen that will have you enthralled and not wanting to stop listening.

    I thoroughly recommend it to everyone.

    "MISTAKE not the right preview"

    This is NOT the story in the book,very annoying to buy a book and then it is not at all about what I expectet
    I keep on listening waiting for the story that I thought the book was about to begin. You have to read the cover on the unabrigded book to hear what this story is really about it is about VERY annoying MISTAKE
    I would like to know what the book that belongs with the preview is titlet.
