Ungentlemanly Warfare by Howard Linskey
Thank you Anne Cater for the opportunity to read and review another book which is not the genre I would normally read. Thank you also to Howard Linskey for your amazing writing skills (I will be buying your other books) and to No Exit Press for publishing it.
The Back of the Book
A soldier and a spy, an officer but not quite a gentleman, Captain Harry Walsh is an SOE secret weapon.
Loathed by his own commanding officer, haunted by the death of his closest friend and trapped in a loveless marriage, Harry Walsh is close to burn out when he is ordered to assassinate the man behind the ME 163 Komet, Hitler’s miracle jet fighter. If Walsh fails, there is no prospect of allied victory in Europe.
Harry Walsh is ruthless, unorthodox and ungentlemanly. He is about to wreak havoc.
As I was reading Ungentlemanly Warfare I could see resemblance to other characters in films and previous books I have read. A cross between James Bond and Wonder Woman Ungentlemanly Warfare is frankly a bloody good read.
Taking you back to a time of war and operations that took place under the cover of darkness in the strictest of confidence. Howard Linskey shows you that it wasn’t all about front line fighting. So many secret operations were taking place in the background, this one was secret secret!
Putting their lives at risk these brave brothers and sisters of war are an inspiration to us all. Getting people together from various backgrounds and countries testing their skills and togetherness, is Harry Walsh the right man for the job?
I liked the way that Harry Walsh is determined in everything he does no matter who his superiors are. Fighting his own internal war whilst putting his life on the line for his country.
Ungentlemanly Warfare is a fantastic and gripping read. Following the German and British operations, you will always be wondering what will happen next.
I am excited by this book and will definitely be buying the other ones. If this is anything to go by they are worth it for sure.
Ungentlemanly Warfare was published on 6th June 2019, the anniversary of D-Day, by No Exit Press. You can buy your copy here.
