Publisher's Summary

October 1939: War has been declared, but until the armies massed on either side of the French/German border engage, all is quiet on the Western Front. But just because its quiet doesn't mean that it's not deadly. There are those who believe the war no one wants to fight should be brought to a swift conclusion, even if it means treachery.

    Story
    "A really good listen"
    Would you listen to Shadows of War again? Why?

    I would certainly listen to this book again. It is perfect for listening on a dark and stormy night, sitting by a real fire with a glass of wine. It captures all the drama of the old black and white films of the '40's that I so enjoy.


    What other book might you compare Shadows of War to, and why?

    It has a similar feel to The Smiler with the Knife by Nicholas Blake. Capturing the chaos and drama of the interwar years and the rise of fascism and the threat of communism to the status quo


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The scene where the hero confronts his pacifist but perfectly clueless parent. I admired the aged french woman and her straightforward solution to the problems presented


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The emotional reaction I had to this book was simply of enjoyment. It did not make me laugh or cry though the scene between Annalisa and the police was quite harrowing.


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this very well crafted story with is twists and turns and would recommend it to anyone, who like me, enjoys books from that era.
