'A thrilling tale of slit throats, torture and loud bangs; it is also a story of seduction and illicit sex: quite unlike anything else to emerge from the last war. Definitely a fascinating read.'
'Major Geoff is my type of soldier - the kind of guy you want in your team when you tear up the rule book.'
'Fast-paced... a good dose of humour. It is refreshing to read a book relating to that period that could have been written by a modern soldier with a typical work hard, play hard ethos.'
'Thrilling (and even classic)... parachuted as a saboteur into Greece, where he stayed for over a year, doing heroic mischief against the Nazis, and not exactly improving the morals of the local Greek women. There's no doubting that this is the record of a hero - albeit one in the Flashman mode.'
'Major Geoff is a brave, blithe adventurer in ruthless, resourceful action, as opportunistic and vigorous in the theatre of war as in the bedroom.'
'This book is simply cracking. Dirty, dangerous and a lot of fun.'
'Former army officer Roger Field pieces together Major Geoff's unpublished journals and letters in this uncut version of World War II. Most riveting of all is the Major's account of the destruction of the Asopos Viaduct in occupied Greece - this is Boy's Own stuff at its best.'
'War heroes come in all shapes and sizes, but I've rarely come across any as charismatic as Geoffrey Gordon-Creed... A maverick and prodigious womaniser, it's no surprise to learn he was a friend of Ian Fleming and was reputedly one of the models for James Bond.'
Cracking stuff and the handsome major is a wonderful subject.
Roger Field has shown great skill as a storyteller....he is able to make his subject's story all the more believable and brave.
A diverting, thrilling, amusing book about a larger-than-life character.
