Summary

When Belize is invaded by a powerful neighbour, it's Britain that must spring to the defence of this old outpost of empire. But intervening in distant Central America will test the limits of the former colonial power. And in the end the outcome will turn on the skill, boldness and heart-bursting bravery of a handful of British forces already in country....

A gripping fictional war story

Despite a slow start, while setting up the character back stories, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. So much so that I have purchased the other 3 books by the same author.

Great listen

I’ve always enjoyed military stories and after reading the reviews of this book thought I’d give it a shot. I was not disappointed. It’s not a difficult read but the characters are well developed and you get to know them as the plot unfolds. I recommend this book to everyone as it has a bit of everything but especially to those who like war stories.

Superb book

One of the best military stories I have ever listened to. The authors deep understanding of military strategy, tactics, weapons and units makes the characters and story completely believable. There is no Rambo-esque glamorisation of war. A light is shone on the horror and human tragedy of military confrontation, whilst recognising the courage of the men and women who serve in all the armed services. Highly recommended.

A cracking book.

Yet again the third book lives up to the standard of the other two. Each book is a stand alone story so can be listened too in any order, the story’s are superb. As before, the characterisations are wonderful; with you growing attached to them as the story flows.
A great book that will have you extending the sleep timer at least once.

Mike Lunnon-Woods books are not to be missed.

Outstanding read and a great listen to story. John Telfer brings Mike Lunnon - Woods book to your brain in a real life drama. If you like a degree of truth and fabulous descriptive text. If you like a battle royal and strong sentiments.... Listen or Read on. Beware though you might think you are in the battle.
