What readers are saying about Dead Ground:
"One of the best war books I have ever read." N.N. Light
"The author skillfully creates an atmosphere of foreboding and builds the tension." Lynda Dickson - Books Direct
"The “hero”, Simon Ellice, is thankfully not particularly likeable being irresponsible, egotistical and very self-centred. Despite all that, I want to know more about him so I can't wait for his future exploits." Amazon UK reviewer
“[Dead Ground]… unfolds with stealth, careful observation and close detail combining to produce an explosive ending. The battle narrative is superb, understated and economical, it’s an immersive, terrifying and moving experience.” Amazon UK reviewer
