The Odin Mission (Sergeant Jack Tanner, #1) Before today I had not ever read a fictional acount of WW2 I always thought that it was almost a taboo subject amongst fiction writers, with people being scared of writing the wrong thing about the most horrific modern history to date However, this book proved me wrong Not only did it provide a gripping, heart racing tale but it managed it in a way that seemed to honour the dead and not make a mockery out of it The atmposhere seemed real and shocked, the characters suitably written There wa Before today I had not ever read a fictional acount of WW2 I always thought that it was almost a taboo subject amongst fiction writers, with people being scared of writing the wrong thing about the most horrific modern history to date However, this book proved me wrong Not only did it provide a gripping, heart racing tale but it managed it in a way that seemed to honour the dead and not make a mockery out of it The atmposhere seemed real and shocked, the characters suitably written There was no super human feats, nothing was taken lightly and in a way I would say that this is almost a tribute to those who died for the Allies fighting of the Nazis.Through Tanner s actions Holland managed to convey the true sense of horror that people felt during these period, and how despite this they fought through and managed feats that one can barely imagine Despite facing insurmountable odds Tanner and his men managed to overcome it all a tale that was seen throughtout the warzones and occupied countries It seemed that Holland managed to take the real actions of the disasterours Norweigan campaign, and create a tale that was compelling as well as completely believable He managed to provide us with realistic characters who reacted realistically, who showed true humanity and put the lie to the traits that people seem to ascribe to heroes today Further, Holland captured the thoughts and feelings of everyone at the time so spectacularly At one stage I laughed at the French Lieutenant when he announced that France had the biggest, greatest army in Europe and that they would not fall easily if my knowledge is correct, and I hope it is or else I may have just failed my history exams, then France fell within four weeks Holland also portrayed the need for oil and its importance in the war with Odin s knowledge beeing likened to liquid gold Anyway It is getting late and I fear that I am rambling on and on If you love historical fiction then you will love this If you love action packed stories then you will love this If you love well written, realistic yet entertaining books then you will love this Have fun reading Awful Seemingly an attempt to capture the vibe of the old Warlord Commando comics with a touch of various WW2 movies thrown into the mix, it fails due to its paper thin plot, underdeveloped supporting characters and totally unbelievable action man hero the plastic doll is somewhatcharasmatic than Jack Tanner What could have been a thrill a minute boys own adventure is a soulless bore sorely lacking in excitement. Fans Of Sharpe Will Love The First Novel In The Jack Tanner Series Set In Norway, April Sergeant Jack Tanner And His Yorks Rangers, Separated From The Main Battalion, Are Drawn Into A Desperate Mission To Smuggle Norway S King Haakon S Treasures To Safety Well, that was fun.This is a breezy, action packed, page turning, ripper of a yarn, featuring Sergeant Jack Tanner as he crosses Norway during the disastrous British military campaign of 1940 I ve read some of Holland s non fiction historical work in the past and enjoyed it Italy s Sorrow and Battle of Britain Holland brings the historical detail and knowledge of the campaign brilliantly to bear, as the historical back drop to what is essentially a Commando story.I just hope the rest of the Well, that was fun.This is a breezy, action packed, page turning, ripper of a yarn, featuring Sergeant Jack Tanner as he crosses Norway during the disastrous British military campaign of 1940 I ve read some of Holland s non fiction historical work in the past and enjoyed it Italy s Sorrow and Battle of Britain Holland brings the historical detail and knowledge of the campaign brilliantly to bear, as the historical back drop to what is essentially a Commando story.I just hope the rest of the series is as enjoyable as this was This is the first book I have read by James Holland and really appreciated his meticulous attention to detail, well drawn characters and relentless pace of the action I highly recommend The Odin Mission and am only disappointed that this is the first in a series of five I will now look for other authors who meet James high standard A solid 4 1 2 stars Gritty down in the dirt WW2 quasi historical fiction read Have had the Jack Tanner books on my to read radar for some time They are seemingly hard to find but managed to snag this one from Thrift Books Hopefully I can stumble upon the others as this looks to be a good series for anyone interested in World War 2 reading. Worth readingGreat read a story of true Britishguysenjoyable because it based on facts Also giving an understanding of what happened when bad planning took place Entertaining read with excellent historical notes details A sort of Sharpe for WW2 Peaked my interest so I m reading the sequel next. This historical novel is a must have for anyone who likes history about the second world war While Jack Tanner is the main person, the story is a lot about some Germans and other people too I like how much detail this book has, the comical parts such as the French officer who gets mad about a thrown shovel, the historical setting and how the characters act It is very exciting as the characters get into trouble a lot, and the feelings of them are described very well I haven t readthat o This historical novel is a must have for anyone who likes history about the second world war While Jack Tanner is the main person, the story is a lot about some Germans and other people too I like how much detail this book has, the comical parts such as the French officer who gets mad about a thrown shovel, the historical setting and how the characters act It is very exciting as the characters get into trouble a lot, and the feelings of them are described very well I haven t readthat one other book by James Holland Darkest Hour and I really enjoy the series By no doubt, I will get all books in the series and probably evenby the author I read the Swedish version Operation Oden by the way, if that matters This is the first Second World War book I have ever read, my preference usually being ancient history, especially Roman, but in all honesty I saw this book for 50p in a charity shop and intrigued by the cover title, decided I had nothing to lose but time by trying it.I think at least one of the other reviewer s said in their review that it felt like reading one of the old Commando type comic books as opposed to something by Leo Kessler or Sven Hassle, and I wouldn t disagree.I think I m right in This is the first Second World War book I have ever read, my preference usually being ancient history, especially Roman, but in all honesty I saw this book for 50p in a charity shop and intrigued by the cover title, decided I had nothing to lose but time by trying it.I think at least one of the other reviewer s said in their review that it felt like reading one of the old Commando type comic books as opposed to something by Leo Kessler or Sven Hassle, and I wouldn t disagree.I think I m right in saying this was the author s first attempt at fiction writing and that is evident by some of the all too wooden supporting characters in the book Some of the language used and I don t mean foul language as there s very little in this book, doesn t sit as quite right either, but the lack of swearing means that the book can appeal to a wider audience and that s no bad thing.That said, I quite enjoyed the book which moved along at a fair pace and the basic story wasn t too bad sort of a 20th century Richard Sharpe is what it felt like.In conclusion, not a book I would jump up and down with excitement about but if I happen to stumble across the sequel, which I m sure there must be, I will certainly give it a try Thethe author writes therealistic and rounded his characters will become I m sure
