I really enjoyed this novel based around the experiences of the author's father who fought as a British liaison officer with Slovenian partisans during WW2 It really expanded my knowledge of this area of conflict with all it's bitter ancient enmities that were exposed once in the Balkans wars of late last century It sort of works in the same way as Hemingway's novel For Whom the Bell Tolls where an American character fought alongside the Spanish against the forces of fascism Of course the writing is not on a par with Hemingway but in many ways I still preferred it The countryside setting was constantly well described the peasant lifestyle and the Slav characters were nicely portrayed and had some depth the action seemed real and was kept mostly simple and unmelodramatic Particularly well done was the constant dilemma of the partisans in seeking food and shelter from locals which would inevitably bring down savage revenge attacks on those who gave them succour of any kind It was let down slightly by some of the dialogue and the British main character occasionally felt a bit too innocent and nice but all in all a pretty good read

Urageous kind and alluring especially Jovan their commander and the hauntingly beautiful Marija Yet after a series of daring encounters the enemy’s net begins to tighten They find evidence of massacres of a dark and terrible band of men pursuing them through the wilderness As the Partisans stumble their way towards a final tragic battle so the relationships within the group begin to fray with Tom finding himself forced to face up to his deepest most secret desire. A sad book it didn't seem to go anywhere I kept expecting it to improve
