The text with each chapter makes for an interesting account of the operation, as well as the photos which illustrate the story of events and which in turn have more useful captions that tell more of the story. The terrain, the villages all give a good illustration of both the atmosphere and the character of the war that came to Sicily. For the modellers, there is some helpful detail on uniforms and equipment of the place and time which could be helpful as ideas and inspiration for a variety of dioramas.

The dictum of many of the men that served with Peter Davis was: better to die happily having 'lived' a little than never to have 'lived' at all. All shared the intense lives of complete military professionals with the pride of being a part of the SAS. These were ordinary men as the fears and concerns of Davis show but they were also extraordinary because they control intense fear and carry on with the tasks they have been set. This book is a great tribute to those men. It is an honest and very readable account of the life of a young officer whose readers can do no more than respect and rejoice he survived. To be murdered in his home in South Africa in 1994 was not what he deserved.
