Review: EASTERN APPROACHES by Fitzroy Maclean

Tracey from A Book Sanctuary selected Eastern Approaches by Fitzroy Maclean for the WWII reading challenge.  Here’s an excerpt from her review:

Was there anything this man couldn’t do?! It would seem not…

Reporting directly to Winston Churchill, he was then parachuted into Yugoslavia to check out the situation with the rival Partisan groups. His brief was to find out who was killing more of the enemy and set about helping them. For 18 months he worked closely with Tito and despite differing ideologies, Tito being a committed Communist, forged an allegiance based on respect and short term mutual goals.

There is so much more contained within these pages and if any one message comes out of it, it’s the age old adage..”if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again.” If Maclean had been deterred at the first, second or twentieth obstacle, his story could have been so different.
