Kurzbeschreibung

The start of a WWII series from Iain Gale, author of Alamein.

A masterly portrayal of World War Two heroism, with vivid action and stirring personal journeys.

A small team of soldiers, left behind to cover the British retreat, are ordered to blow the bridge as late as possible to stem the German tank pursuit. Although successful, the operation kills desperate refugees fleeing the scene. Who will be made to face the court-martial: the men carrying out the orders or their commanding officer?

This is only the first of many dilemmas that Peter Lamb and his troop must face during the chaotic first months of World War Two. After becoming cut off from the rest of their regiment, and assigned a mission that takes them deep into France behind the fast-moving enemy lines, the cracks begin to appear.

In these unexpected, tense circumstances, Lamb's men face internal struggles, taking their focus off both their French allies and the German enemy.

Black Jackals shows how men react to the challenges of war, and gives a fresh and fascinating picture of the frontlines.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A Saccarine War Story 7. September 2011
Von Jeffrey Swystun - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This was a light, enjoyable and innocent novel of the early days of World War Two. It reminded me of the paperbacks and comic books of my childhood that romanticized aspects of the war featuring chivalry, honour, heroism, and idealism. The action here takes place during the British Expeditionary Force's retreat and evacuation from France in 1940. It follows the challenges faced by a platoon of the Black Jackals, a Territorial unit. Though there are instances of war crimes and cruelty, the book exudes old world innocence. There is a great deal of stiff-upper lip, "We're Going to Hang out the Washing on the Siegfried Line", 'good strong cuppa', and the like that harkens back to a time and conduct that may very well never have existed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent, compelling read 20. August 2014
Von John M. Danielski - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Excellent, compelling read; fast paced, action filled with a most sympathetic and resourceful hero. I am puzzled by the reviewer who called it a " light, innocent, comic book" like read; it is none of those things. The battle scenes are highly convincing, the supporting characters are well drawn and believable, and the protagonist faces quite a number of interesting moral choices which he resolves in ways that make the reader cheer him on. For an adventure novel, the work has a surprising emotional punch. It is also one of the few books to explore the British Army's role in the fall of France in 1940. I look forward to seeing it's hero, Peter Lamb, featured in future works.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A fictional account of a real-life WWII battle 25. September 2013
Von Sarah Frost - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
10/08 - This was a fictional account of a real WWII battle. When I first started reading I was under the impression that other than WWII and the British, French and German armies fighting each other nothing was historically accurate. I was pleasantly surprised to read in the historical note that pretty much every thing except Lamb and his men and their mission were taken from accurate historical accounts, instead of Gale's imagination as I had originally assumed. I was a little suspicious of the likelihood of the British Army taking a female civilian along with them, retreating backwards from the frontline, moving house to house. Maybe there are reports of civilians being rescued in this way, I don't know I haven't done any research, but it seemed to me that it might be a plot device to provide an extra bit of tension and personality to Lamb, instead of a realistic account. It turns out this is the start of a series featuring Lieutenant Peter Lamb and I'm interested to go on reading about his experiences through the rest of WWII
4.0 von 5 Sternen Fine wartime novel, beautifully written. 11. Dezember 2014
Von Bob Jarvis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Solid account of the adventures of a British platoon that is thrown into the absolute total turmoil of the desperate retreat and ultimate withdrawal of the British Expeditionary Forces in 1940 war-time France. The principal character, Lieutenant Lamb is an engaging hero type (perhaps a little too much "Boys Own" for some folk's liking), and his men show admirable loyalty to his machinations in fulfilling his secret mission and trying to get them on to the evacuation boats for England. This adds up to a very good story with a dashing, high adventure style and beautifully written by what I (at least) consider an author who is on top of his game.
Based on historical events this is an interesting tale set in a much ignored era of what was a true nadir of British feats of arms. No typos, no bad grammar just a great flowing read.
Very highly recommended. Will certainly follow the career of Lamb & Co. with some enthusiasm.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Decent read .... 11. Januar 2014
Von Lord Flashheart - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I imagine that the Battle of France in 1940 is a difficult time and place to set a historical novel.

In reality, the BEF moved to it's defensive line on the River Dyle and the Germans simply went straight through the French, Dutch and Belgian armies on either side. The BEF retreated in reasonably good order as far as Dunkirk and then went home minus all of their heavy equipment. There was a counter- attack at Arras which failed as soon as the Germans were able to bring up their heavy anti- tank guns and a second evacuation from St. Valery.

It probably went about as well as it was ever going to but, it isn't really a high spot of British military history. The difficulty for an author is trying to find the hero something to do that let's him participate in all the interesting bits of what was a disjointed campaign.

Nevertheless, the author does it well. The hero's platoon is reduced by half in the opening battle and nearly cut- off. He meets a mysterious Colonel who gives him a message to pass on to the commander of 51st Highland Division and the rest of the story is centered around delivering the message. The hero and his merry men get sidetracked by several events on the way and the Colonel would have probably done better to have sent the message by homing tortoise. Of course they eventually get through and are evacuated from St. Valery with what was left of 51st HD.
