5.0 out of 5 stars Thunderous, 25 July 2011
By M. Ogden (Manchester, UK) – See all my reviews
This review is from: Thunder in May (Paperback)

‘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.

Don’t forget, a part of the purchase price goes towards charity.

A great prequel to ‘Seelowe Nord’ and I can’t wait for the third book. Well done, Andy.
