Superb WW II fiction

Many years ago I read every book written by Douglas Reeman. Each book was an adventure and I never felt let down. Now I only listen to books.
It was wonderful to find that they selected a reader that really does justice to the works of Douglas Reeman.

I thoroughly enjoyed Winged Escort and look forward to the rest of his books being released.

By the way if you like the age of sail Douglas writes this era under the pen name of Alexander Kent which are also excellent and I'm glad to say now being released by Audible.

Fantastic Listen.

This book has a great story line, filled with intrigue, suspense and action.
It also has that touch of romance, which brings the human side of some of the characters out and the inhumane side of others.

It is very well read by David and Douglas, who has written many quality books has not dissapointed with this one.

Excellent

As usual Reeman does a great job of keeping the reader/listener gripped with his narrative and description. Rintoul as usual is an excellent narrator who appears the perfect match for Reemans stories
