- The Financial Times.He has captured marvellously well the atmosphere as well as the reality of the Middle East in 1917…As for the description of the famous charge at Huj, I defy any reader to control a rapid beating of the heart. - The Daily Telegraph.An excellently researched and well written saga… - Yorkshire Evening Post.“A work of fiction cleverly woven around a cast of real-life characters and historical events...

a good read.” - Coventry Evening Telegraph“Colin Smith brings two special talents to his recreation of Allenby’s Palestine campaign: he was once a soldier and writes of the Other Ranks with insight and authenticity- and he spent much of his working life as The Observer’s Middle East correspondent... more than an immensely readable tale, a vivid reminder that the countries of the Middle East have been formed in the crucible of treachery as well as battle.” Esmond Wright.

Contemporary Review.Colin Smith lived in Jerusalem and Cairo as The Observer’s Middle East correspondent, and his military histories include the widely acclaimed ‘Alamein: War Without Hate’. His fiction includes ‘Spies of Jerusalem’ and ‘Collateral Damage’.
