The mission was simple - bomb a Polish refinery making vital cold-weather fuel additives for the German army.
The target was easy - almost no anti-aircraft defences, as it was too far away for Allied bombers to get there and back.
This was launched one of the most daring adventures of the war - a game of bluff and double-bluff - as Major Barry Crofton and a small band of Free Polish troops tried to ensure that the bombers would fly home again once their job was done…
This is a great example of a "men-on-a-mission" Commando book. Captain Jan Kaminski, a headstrong, borderline insubordinate, Free Polish Forces commander meets his match in no-nonsense M.I.5 operative, Major Barry Crofton. In true Commando style they clash with each other before their mission has even begun.
Author Alan Hebden knows exactly how to keep the drama and action moving along at a great pace. Ably illustrated by Keith Shone, Point Of No Return is perfectly topped off with a stunning Ian Kennedy cover.
