This is great stuff, extremely well researched and believable with exquisite detail but it never glorifies war it far too realistic.
What did you like best about Darkest Hour? What did you like least?
I think that the Battle of France and the near distruction of the BEF is dramatic enough material for the author without reaching for formula of a wicked Company Sargeant Major and a Commanding Officer who cannot recognise Tanner as the super soldier he is.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Some recognition of his achievements in Norway would be nice. Tanner hits his head hard on the reset button and would have been better off shooting Oden for all the use it does his career.
Tanner left Norway with no promotion and no medals. Seems implausable
Any additional comments?
Jack Tanner clenches his fists with rage (he does this alot) throughout the BEF retreat in France fighting not only the Germans but also the wicked Obadiah Hakeswill (Sgt Blackstone) and the idiot Upperclass Commanding Officer who does not recognise Tanner's ability.
Tanner who can smell a German ambush from 11km away, always walks into Hakewill's traps and ends up mistrusted and disliked by the CO and robbed of his promotion.
Looking forward to 3rd book, Tanner clenching during the Retreat in Crete
