Reviews

Holland is excellent on telling detail... This is a notable account of an epic human experience, told with the informality and enthusiasm that distinguish Holland's work... If the story is familiar, Holland tells it with authority and exuberant panache -- Max Hastings * The Sunday Times *
Holland is one of a new generation of historians who were born long after the war but who bring to the subject a freshness and proper spirit of enquiry. A great achievement -- John Sergeant * Sunday Express *
Excellent on all the technicalities of the conflict... full of lively pen portraits and unusual insights * Spectator *
Stuffed with personal accounts that drive the narrative along at a cracking pace -- Patrick Bishop * Mail on Sunday *
Ambitious and comprehensive... the pace never flags as the narrative ranges effortlessly from the cockpit of the Spitfire to the gallery of the House of Commons -- Saul David * Daily Telegraph *
