Would you listen to Jail Busters again? Why?
Yes, to refer back to notable moments and some of the deeply researched details. There is a lot about the French Resistance in the area north of Paris and a lot of attention to all the contributing forces that were needed to make the decision to mount the spectacular airborne raid at all.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Not that kind of book.
Have you listened to any of Peter Noble’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
The account was read with authority and pace.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes, the mosquito aircraft.

Would you try another book written by Robert Lyman or narrated by Peter Noble?
I purchased this audiobook hoping to have an in depth report on the R.A.F. raid, this was limited to 1 chapter in 20. If your interest is in the internal politics of MI5, SOE and the Resistance during the war please go ahead and download. If like me you are more interested in R.A.F. history don't bother.
What could Robert Lyman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
A more equal split of the story into the 3 sections he chose to specialise in.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Jail Busters?

Amazing Story well told. I enjoyed the section on the mosquito bomber immensely. Lots of detail on the french resistance movement throughout the entire period leading up till the raid. Probably got lost a bit in the detail of the different groups and i became confused with so many french names !
A worthy listen though for any history buffs !
