Review of “Attack at Night”

51d-zyc8pl

“Attack at Night” eBook was published in 2016 (original paper edition published in 1988) and was written by Robert Jackson (https://www.fantasticfiction.com/j/robert-jackson/). Mr. Jackson published over 50 books.

I received a galley of this novel for review through https://www.netgalley.com. I categorize this novel as ‘PG’ because it contains scenes of Violence. The story is set mostly in 1943 occupied France during World War II. The primary character is Captain Callum Douglas of the British SAS.

He and his well trained team are landed in occupied France. Their mission is to meet with the French Resistance and plan an attack on a German air field. They rush to prevent German bombers from attacking a Allied convoy headed for Italy and a second front at Anzio. They must rush their plans when they find that the Germans plan a push to route out the French resistance.

I enjoyed the 5 hours I spent reading this 162 page World War II Thriller. I have read several of Jacksons stories and he could tell a good tale. The story is fast paced and maintains the reader’s interest. While I have no objections to the cover art, I am not sure how it is relevant to the story. It is German, but not a Dornier 217 which was being flown from the base to be attacked. I give this novel a 4 out of 5.

My book reviews are also published on Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/31181778-john-purvis).
