Review Text

There is a snappy authenticity about this war story as narrated by the Captain of a British Commando unit sent to break up a German Signal Corps outfit operating in Holland. While the mission itself is accomplished reasonably well, the rescue plane crashes and they are eventually captured and one is seriously wounded. There are vivid moments as a farmer sacrifices his life; as they dismantle a bomb or sail through mine fields; or as they face frustration in the face of an attack by Allied Forces. Mr. White's technical knowledge is authoritative and his last, comparable ?? tale, The Long Day's Dying, is now being screened. Perhaps The Long Night's Walk will go the same route.
