Wonderful. Couldn’t put the book down. I am 88. So lived during that era. But in the States. Brought back many memories. Great books, will read them, all thanks so much.
I have just finished reading the last book of this trilogy & I have found that the facts contained in the books have reverberated through my mind & made me stop to think, really think, about the terrible chaos, heartbreak & courage of people during not only the 1st but 2nd world war. The books, however, included some heart-warming stories of love & friendship. I was born after the war but reading these books has taken me into the heart of the war to the suffering & degradations caused by one particular madman. Thankyou for your time & insight to bring us these stories & I hope that many more will read these books and enjoy them as I have.
As an avid fan of WWII novels I have devoured this trilogy. I’m on my second reading of vol 1 and vol 2. I can’t get enough of Edward and Lily. and you have left me longing for more. As a love story put on hold for the duration of the war for the greater cause of winning the war. I can see your scientific side coming in with the vast scope of all the campaigns and challenges of the Blitz, the V1 and V2 rocket attacks, as well as the indomitable spirit of the English people. Truly “The Greatest Generation”. My family was part of this as well. I was 12 days old when Pearl Harbor was bombed. My Father served as a paratrooper in the Pacific and my uncle gave his life at Leyte Gulf.
Brilliant from start to finish. Unstoppable read even with dodgy eyes! Cannot wait to start the “Autumn” series.
This is without doubt one of the best books I’ve read in a very long time. I was taken on a journey and felt as if I was right there with the characters and in the settings of the story. Do yourself a favor and read the other books in the series for the whole story. You won’t be sorry. Oh, and one last note, have a box of tissues close at hand. The books are very emotionally charged. 21.4.2022
This book “None Stood Taller The Price of Freedom” is simply amazing. Historical facts interwoven with amazing characters and totally believable/plausible events. Trepidation one moment (tears quite often) and smiles of relief next. It was like you were in the room with the characters; indeed so realistic, it was like watching the film whilst reading the book. If you read one book this year, make it this one….
I cannot express how truly remarkable this story was. I love movies depicting wartime. I believe the heroes depicted represent only a fraction of all the true heroes of those times. I recommend these books to anyone who enjoys a strong willed female lead character who isn’t afraid of doing what needs to be done regardless of the barriers put before her. The historic details woven into this love story are what made me repeatedly have to remind myself that these characters didn’t exist in that period of time no matter how real they appeared in print. Mr Turnham, please sir, sell the rights to this story to Hollywood and let these characters live on in film. You have a reader for life. Kelly
“None Stood Taller”. I enjoy reading WW2 historical fiction and this was, without a doubt, one of the best I’ve read. It really hit home for me in a variety of ways. It’s a very well written, inspirational and atmospheric read, but this book is much more than a story about WW2. It’s a wonderful story about life, about leadership, achievement, teamwork, camaraderie, love, courage, compassion, perseverance, and above all, demonstrating how helping people believe in themselves can achieve great things. This is one of those reads where you don’t want to finish it, but can’t put it down. I look forward to the sequel. This author will be heard from!
