From the Siege of Malta to the Victory at Alamein
Recensioner i media
Compelling...Mesmerising stuff. * <i>Sunday Telegraph</i> * Personally compelling and politically revealing. * <i>New York Times</i> * From fighter pilots risking their lives in the skies above England, to squaddies stranded at Dunkirk, to schoolgirls sent abroad to Canada (the book is worth buying just for Bess Walder's account of horror and redemption aboard the City of Benares), this is riveting. * <i>Sunday Express</i> * a remarkable story of determined, against-the-odds resistance...you have to search long and hard to find one with this kind of richness in the reporting and craftsmanship in the telling. * <i>Chicago Herald Tribune</i> * Praise for FINEST HOUR: 'Brilliant...should form part of the National Curriculum.' * <i>Daily Mail</i> * They are accomplished listeners and have blended together eyewitness accounts to produce an exciting narrative. * <i>Daily Mail</i> * An impressive range of interviews with survivors. Their "you are there" technique works powerfully in conveying the gut-wrenching fear of facing Rommel in the turet of a tank, or trying to evade a Stuka attack while manoeuvring an ammunition-packed merchantman en route to beseiged Malta. * The <i>Sunday Times</i> * This is a splendid book, well worth reading along with official histories, for it puts many of the facts into the experiences of ordinary men and women caught up in an unwanted but neccessary war. * <i>Yorkshire Gazette & Herald</i> *
