Victoria Todd-Smith’s review of “None Stood Taller The Final Year”
I am an avid reader of historical fiction of the world wars. It is clear that Peter Turnham was a dedicated researcher for this book and the one before it, both with the same title, except this one was “The Final Year”. It was unputdownable, and I forced myself to read only a couple of chapters at a time so I could savour the entire story slowly. It is blessed with complex characters who are well developed as the story unwinds. It is a book that will have you experience a variety of emotions – joy, triumph, sadness, and depression among many. Ultimately, it really helps the reader understand vicariously how the United Kingdom and its people lived through horrific times and emerged victorious. Enjoy every page – I envy you!
