Need Help to ID a Book

Discussion in 'The Book Club' started by JoeCivvie, Jun 14, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Around 6-9 months ago I saw a new paperback release in a local bookshop. It looked like a Sharpe-type adventure with a section of British squaddies but set in WW2. I didn't buy it at the time, and now can't find it.

    Any ideas what it might have been please? It may have been set in N. Africa.

    Thanks very much.

    Could they be part of the "Coward" Series by James Delingpole?

    Coward on the Beach (D-Day)
    Coward at the Bridge (Arnhem)

    Not bad for a laugh but constant references to situations which Delingpole has not written about yet make for a slightly annoying read.

    Cetainly not to be taken seriously!!!
  3. Thanks for the suggestion Auld-Yin, but I don't think they're it.

    I will look out for them however - they look like good yarns!
  4. It could have been the Jack Tanner series by James Holland which is a WW2 Sharpe style series so far three titles are published set in Norway, France and Crete
  5. That's it Abdiel - I'll make a note and buy it.


    Thanks for the help gentlemen.
