Product Information

'A thrilling tale of slit throats, torture and loud bangs; it is also a story of seduction and illicit sex: quite unlike anything else to emerge from the last war. Definitely a fascinating read.' -- Ranulph Fiennes Major Geoff is my type of soldier - the kind of guy you want in your team when you tear up the rule book. -- Chris Ryan 'Thrilling (and even classic)... parachuted as a saboteur into Greece, where he stayed for over a year, doing heroic mischief against the Nazis, and not exactly improving the morals of the local Greek women. There's no doubting that this is the record of a hero - albeit one in the Flashman mode.' -- A.N. Wilson, Reader's Digest Major Geoff is a brave, blithe adventurer in ruthless, resourceful action, as opportunistic and vigorous in the theatre of war as in the bedroom -- Times Fast-paced... a good dose of humour. It is refreshing to read a book relating to that period that could have been written by a modern soldier with a typical work hard, play hard ethos. -- Sgt Wallace Stephenson, Intelligence Corps, Soldier Magazine 'This book is simply cracking. Dirty, dangerous and a lot of fun.' -- The Field
