(This review submitted by the book's author)

This is an excellent debut novel from Julia Sutherland. Gripping and emotive, it tells the story of the challenges faced by a young man commanding a tank during the Second World War. Powerful descriptions of the D-day Normandy landings perfectly conjure up what it must have been like. The horrors and deprivations of war are softened by the love stories intertwined in the novel. A well-written and sensitive book that will stay in the mind long afterwards. A very good and engaging read. I highly recommend it..
