This review is for: In Defiance of Danger (Kindle Edition)
Review from Tony Parsons
D-Day WWII fighting the Germans.
Maurice (Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve). As the ship approached the beach head they begin to fire at the Germans. Their sister ships were being blown to pieces. Messerschmitt’s were also all around them. He returned to normal life as a hero and very successful in his career as a solicitor.

Richard (Navy) hunted German U-boats. On 1 battle his ships were low on fuel & had to abandon the mission, the Germans won this 1.

The Colonel had his men hold up in an abandoned farmhouse for a brief R/R when the Germans attacked. They returned fire & the Germans get beat finally left.

The Allied Colonel always liked to lead the way. In 1 battle his tanks/crew were surround by Panzer tanks. They were taken prisoner. The British officers were entertained & the other soldiers were escorted off to another building. The Allies overcame the guards and stole some tanks, when the Germans caught up with them later a battle erupted, he did not hang around.

After the war was over Tom (solicitor) received a call from a pilot who wanted to visit with him. When they met he told Tom his story of how they narrowly escaped death.

Tom had met a lot of eccentric PPL in his life. 1 is from South America, quite the worldly traveller he is an adviser on international finance to his President. In the winter he lives in South Africa. He needs protection because the Mafia is after him, more than likely a gambling debt; they owned horses. Tom never saw him again. He later read in the paper in South Africa the Africans must deal with the apartheid on a daily basis & someone who helped mercenary’s find employment had stolen an enormous amount of money & vanished into thin air.

A Chief Superintendent from Scotland Yard armed with a warrant wanted to visit with Tom. He was shown a picture of 1 of his former clients. The man worked for the embassy; Tom found out the officials investigating the case that he had taken money; he was executed.

8, 9, 10, 11.

Wow, I am retired US Army/reserves. This book not only has military in it but spy spoofs & devious PPL as well. What a great set of short stories to read.

I did not take notes on the last 4. Everyone was either a continuance or unique. Very well written; a great story line. I’m also a history buff; especially wars. I will have to rate this free book at a 5.

Thank you
