'Tanner is a chiselled protagonist straight out of the pages of the old Commando comics. . . Destined to be a series that will run and run.' (Mail On Sunday) April 1940. The Nazi Blitzkrieg delivers a hammer blow to defenceless Norway. The few remaining British troops retreat in the fact of a remorseless German advance. For Sergeant Jack Tanner and his stranded patrol, it is a desperate rearguard action. With the odds stacked against them and the temperature dropping fast, they are not only fighting for their lives, but also to protect a mysterious Norwegian professor in whose hands lies the outcome of the war. To survive, Tanner must outfox and outfight the pursuing Nazis who are desperate for the secrets the Norwegian holds. They will stop at nothing to secure them. . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Plenty of action... sharp dialogue and swift characterisation. The whole is intelligently structured so that this is absorbing and thoughtful as well as tense and exciting" * Daily Telegraph *
"Old-fashioned, testosterone-fuelled escapism and Tanner is a chiselled protagonist straight out of the pages of the old Commando comics... Destined to be a series that will run and run" * Mail on Sunday *
"Sharpe for the Blitz years... The Odin Mission is a meaty, all-action yarn" * Sunday Telegraph *
"A good old-fashioned action hero makes his appearance in this page-turning thriller, the first of a planned series of Second World War novels featuring Sergeant Jack Tanner... James Holland, a respected military historian, has produced a story authentic in every detail" * Telegraph *

“Abysmal”

Take one of those old Warlord/Commando comics, throw in some nods to classic war movies of the Where Eagles Dare era and what do you get?

Well, what you should get is a rip roaring boys own adventure full of thrills... More
