Reviews

"Will Davies and I sometimes paddle our kayaks on the very waters Z Special Force used when training for its amphibious attack on Singapore in 1943. Echoing through these pages I hear once again the voice of a natural storyteller and hands-on historian. Rendered with clarity, insight and passion this work of unlocked secrets is itself special." --Chris Walters
