REEMAN, Douglas. A Dawn Like Thunder. London : Heinemann, (1996). First UK Printing. Pp. (12),1-258,(2). 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “The human torpedo, or chariot, is the ultimate weapon in a high-risk war, andonly men of extreme courage or recklessness volunteer for the Special Oper ations missions requiring its use. These are men with nothing to live for, or everything to lose: hardened professionals like Lieutenant James Ross, awarded the Victoria Cross for his work in underwater sabotage, or dedicated, driven amateurs like Charles Villiers, heir to a colonial fortune now seized by the Japanese. Their secret war is played out in the icy darkness of Norwegian fjords or in the pitiless shallows of the Mediterranean, until the conflict in South-East Asia reaches new heights of savagery. Then only the chariot and the heroes or madmen who guide it can carry the attack into the very heart of occupied territory." - from the dj.
