This is definitely one of the worst books I've ever read. Wheatley's style of writing is anything else but exciting. The main character, Gregory, is the unpleasant type of guy who doesn't care about cheating his girl friend and is full of prejudice. Unfortunately, he is not the only one of this kind in the book. The author unsuccessfully tries to incorporate as many events of World War II into one story, giving far too much details where unnecessary. There are so many better book than this, do yourself a favour and choose one of those.
