"Plenty of action... sharp dialogue and swift characterisation. The whole is intelligently structured so that this is absorbing and thoughtful as well as tense and exciting" * Daily Telegraph * "Old-fashioned, testosterone-fuelled escapism and Tanner is a chiselled protagonist straight out of the pages of the old Commando comics... Destined to be a series that will run and run" * Mail on Sunday * "Sharpe for the Blitz years... The Odin Mission is a meaty, all-action yarn" * Sunday Telegraph * "A good old-fashioned action hero makes his appearance in this page-turning thriller, the first of a planned series of Second World War novels featuring Sergeant Jack Tanner... James Holland, a respected military historian, has produced a story authentic in every detail" * Telegraph *
