Ungentlemanly Warfare

1 Mins read

When the assassination of the scientist behind Hitler’s miracle jet fighter is ordered, there is only one man who can do the job – burned out soldier, spy and, not quite a gentleman, Captain Harry Walsh. Ungentlemanly Warfare by Howard Linskey is set around Rouen in Normandy in 1943, the year before the D-Day invasion. Walsh and three others are dropped into this highly-charged territory to train up a disorganised band of Maquis to wreak havoc on the German occupiers and influence the outcome of the War. There’s high stakes and violence, but always with the light touch of an iron fist in a velvet glove before the punch smashes through. Like Linskey’s first wartime novel, Hunting the Hangman, which features a mission to kill evil super Nazi Reinhard Heydrich, the main architect of the Holocaust, this is a superior historical caper – page-turning and irresistible with the flavour of a classic World War II thriller. Read our full review.
