A New Kind of War takes us back to the Greece and Germany of 1945 - as the old kind of war comes to its official end. Why has David Audley broken the British-Greek truce? And furthermore, why did his brigadier order his actions? Is it just coincidence that Audley is surprised near Delphi by Captain Fattorini of the Royal Engineers?
As a result of that unfortunate encounter, Fattorini finds himself in occupied Germany as the newest member of TRR-2: a special intelligence unit engaged in a dangerous and brutal game. It is not until he at last meets Audley's mysterious brigadier that Fattorini learns the full truth about his own assignment in the ill-omened Teutoburg Forest.

What do you say when you listen to the perfect book, read by the perfect narrator?
And I am embarrassed to say, from an author I have been completely unaware of until just a few weeks ago? Words fail, and I have already given 5 stars to the predecessors so now what? Bravo Audible!
Ww2, spies, and David Audley as a young man. The scene of the office's mess is just about the best English military scene I have ever watched (and I mean I was there!).
The mystery (plot) Is subtle and believable, the characters full and their images clear. I said something in one of the other reviews of this series about this author being a LeCarre light and now am faced with a retraction that I am wrong, this Series has Smiley on the run. (Not that I could do without). Anyway, the only sadness is that these books are not long enough and there are only 18 of them, so savor them and delight in great audible story telling. This book may be in my top 5 ever. Okay, I will stop now, but you get the idea...
After 2 hours of listening, I have no idea where this book is going. I finally gave up.
Give me some idea what this book is really about
The characters were fascinating and believable, the plot was subtle, the story involved a time in history about which I knew very little. I call this a "challenging listen," however, because at times I had a hard time following the story. It was a bit more work than entertainment for my rather unsophisticated taste.
Narration was delightful and captured a variety of accents that enhanced the characters.
Yes, I'd be interested in following the characters in further adventures.
