Chapter 1. The black-painted Lysander loomed over her, blacker still against the moon and bigger-looking than she’d expected, or remembered from her training days.

Chapter 1. A plane with one cockpit for the pilot and another behind him for his passenger (or passengers; it would hold two easily enough, even three in emergencies) sounded small – and it was, comparatively speaking – but in this moonlight and from ground level it had a high and bulky look.

The first in the gripping historical Andy Holt Naval Thrillers series. The extraordinary prequel to the Rosie Ewing Spy Thrillers and their final instalment. Andy Holt is third mate on the cargo ship PollyAnna, carrying coal through Nazi-infested waters. Holt's vessel is bound for Montevideo, all the while wary of a particular German warship, the Graf Spee, which is picking off British vessels. But as the PollyAnna leaves Montevideo, the Graf Spee shows up in the same port holding British prisoners. A group codenamed Countryman are briefed by London to get a certain German out of Vichy's hands.

Exciting book but confusing in many aspects. This book, like all of Fullerton's is confusing: a chapter opens with "he did this". but there is no indication who the "he" is.

A stunning adventure in war-torn France. Exciting book but confusing in many aspects. You need to read a few pages to realize which of the many characters this section is about. A great deal of that. It would be easy to have a title for a chapter to indicate who is being discussed.

This book is part of Alexander Fullerton's SOE trilogy, the story of Rosie Ewing, who was a real agent for England during WW II. Rosie is a wonderful character who will steal your heart as she works as a radio operator in occupied France, setting up air drops for the French.

In 1944, Rosie Ewing is returning to German-occupied France. She's carrying a radio, half a million francs, a pistol, and two cyanide capsules. Her destination is Finistère in northwest Brittany. D-Day is not far off, and the Maquis is still dangerously under-armed; part of her brief is to organize immediate para-drops of weaponry. There's also a chateau that's used as a resting place for U-boat crews and where naval top brass periodically gather; Bomber Command needs only a date and a few days notice. Rosie knows that the man who'll be meeting her on the ground tonight may be a traitor, that a frighteningly large number of agents have been arrested recently, and that the likely end of the road for women agents is Ravensbruck. Nothing like a safe bet.
  • Not too bad a book, the story line is great. What made me not give a five star review, for this and all the books in this series, is there is often too much unnecessary detail, making them a tedious read at times.

  • Gripping historical fiction

  • I was interested in this novel because of the settings (The story unfolds in the vicinity of the place where I live).
    Certainly not masterpiece, but an interesting story about undercover Resistnce ein the 1943-1944 timespan in Brittany.
    A number of small anachronisms show limited research and a lack of understanding of what really happened there. Historians should not expect any scoop there, just recreational, somewhat naive story.

  • This book is part of Alexander Fullerton's SOE trilogy, the story of Rosie Ewing, who was a real agent for England during WW II. Rosie is a wonderful character who will steal your heart as she works as a radio operator in occupied France, setting up air drops for the French Resistance and dodging the Gestapo, while also performing an important special mission.

    Once you begin to read about Rosie, you will want to finish the trilogy.
