THIS BOOK IS ABOUT THE 2ND WORLD WAR...24 MAY 1940: WHY DID HITLER STOP THE PANZERS AND ALLOW THE BRITISH TO ESCAPE TO DUNKIRK?..ANTHONY PRICE PROVIDES AN ANSWER IN THIS BRILLIANT,COMPULSIVELY READABLE THRILLER OF TWO YOUNG OFFICERS PITCHFORKED INTO THE CHAOS OF WAR.THE GERMAN ADVANCE STRANDS THEM BEHIND ENEMY LINES WHARE THEY WITNESS AN EXTRAORDINARY SCENE: A HIGH RANKING BRITISH OFFICER CONSORTING WITH NAZIS. THE POSSIBLE EXPLANATIONS ARE SHARTTERING- NOT ONLY FOR THEM BUT FOR THE FATE OF THE WHOLE BRITISH EXPEDITIONARY FORCE....

This was really good. A World War II spy/combat thriller that leads you down a primrose path and then yanks you off of it. It helps that the characters are interesting, and Bastable (the viewpoint character) is sympathetic and understandable (if not always likable).

Highly recommended.
