I absolutely adored this book, which started off a bit slow and almost boring but then saved itself with a well-timed reveal and a race to the end. I also liked that, unlike most other World War II novels that I’ve read in my life, it focused on a military protagonist and talked about the strategic and political side of the war rather than the persecution side. And, as a bonus, it had female protagonists who proved their awesomeness early on and never lost it. A must-read for anyone with a sense of adventure and loyalty.
