Landsborough’s book presents the account of Operation Agreement which was an audacious plan to attack and destroy the German base at Tobruk during late 1942. Due to a catalogue of errors and misadventure, not helped by the fact that security was lax and the enemy was aware of the Operation almost from its inception, all the Allied personnel involved showed determination, courage and considerable heroism in pursuance of achieving objectives against the odds.
From the first page the author shows skill at setting the scene, introducing the ‘characters’ and laying out the story in an absorbing and engaging manner. This is classic story telling that embraces the reader and ‘brings to life’ the account in fascinating and vivid detail.
Tobruk Commando is not just another book about war. It is a very well presented, well researched and highly informative and gripping story.
