“Seelöwe Nord bristles with knockout battle action, from close quarters fighting on land to breakneck sea engagements.”

“I’ve just finished the book… absolutely brilliant! I was completely engrossed and really taken in by the realism of it all. I’m a bit of a student of the Royal Navy in World War II and was particularly impressed with the writing on the naval side of things…”

“…The best novel I have ever read; better then Birdsong…”

’Unputdownable’ isn’t in the Oxford English dictionary, but if it was it’d surely mention ‘Thunder in May’ as an example. Andy Johnson has perfected the ability to write an historical novel using character that zips along with pace, unfolding events informatively without boring the reader. Both sides of the conflict are dealt equal time to explain perspectives and experiences with such vividness, at the end I fully expected to find dirt under my fingernails. You do feel right there in the midst of the action following Sergeant Jackson through thick and thin as he looks after the men under his charge, fighting a retreat back to Dunkirk, picking up stragglers he inspires to fight alongside him and his troop.
A brilliant adventure.
A great prequel to ‘Seelowe Nord’ and I can’t wait for the third book. Well done, Andy.
