I read only the free sample, it took me some time searching through the internet about WARRAMUNGA and what it means and it's history, so I will be able to understand the point and the message that the author likes to tell in that story.
It's quite interesting to know about these historical information, and I really wish if I read what is written about Arabic countries and their mission there.

I don't enjoy war stories, so I'll give this book a miss. However, I shall recommend it to some of my friends that do enjoy this type of story. Thank you for your review.

A great novel about war, spies, mysterious crime, and adventures in the 40's. Pretty exiting. And a trilogy? This is going to be fun. Congratulations.

Books on historical wars can be a great read when one is really interested on them. As for me, I am not much of a fan. But the book sounds to be enthralling and entertaining. Thanks for the review.

This is an interesting adjunct to the story of the WW II. Surely, the espionage efforts of the Allies extend up to all tributaries of the great river of destruction that the Nazis were a part. It will be an enthralling read for me, being a fan of war stories and espionage novel. Thanks for the review.

I’m not a huge fan of historical fiction but I do often enjoy war stories. I’d be interested to find out more about the mission in Egypt that James and Jack have to complete and whether they actually succeed!

Warramunga war by Greg kater, historical fiction about war. I always taught the war of the Nazi’s was German and Russian,I get to know the Australians were kinda part today. The storyline is quite unique and the write takes us across the world to Africa and that bears a source of originality with me or for me.

I enjoy historical fiction, and I haven’t read many books set in Egypt. Although it sounds like this one focuses more on espionage and political aspects than I’d care for, I’m going to give it a try. Thanks for the insightful review!
