10/08 - This was a fictional account of a real WWII battle. When I first started reading I was under the impression that other than WWII and the British, French and German armies fighting each other nothing was historically accurate. I was pleasantly surprised to read in the historical note that pretty much every thing except Lamb and his men and their mission were taken from accurate historical accounts, instead of Gale's imagination as I had originally assumed. I was a little suspicious of the likelihood of the British Army taking a female civilian along with them, retreating backwards from the frontline, moving house to house. Maybe there are reports of civilians being rescued in this way, I don't know I haven't done any research, but it seemed to me that it might be a plot device to provide an extra bit of tension and personality to Lamb, instead of a realistic account. It turns out this is the start of a series featuring Lieutenant Peter Lamb and I'm interested to go on reading about his experiences through the rest of WWII.
