Synopsis

Coward on the Beach by James Delingpole

Dick Coward is an ordinary chap who keeps finding himself in extraordinary circumstances. Caught up in World War II's major events, he flies Spitfires in the Battle of Britain, acts as a military advisor at Stalingrad, from whence to D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge and the crossing of the Rhine. But to Coward there are worse things than war, not least the possibility of the family estate ending up in the hands of his ghastly, undeserving brother, James. Only by amassing military glory to satisfy his father can Coward guarantee that justice prevails.

Reviews

'A rattling story, full of action and laughs and gut-wrenching fear ... Roll on Vol.2'
Daily Mail

'Very funny, and always delightfully non-PC'
GQ

'A novel about the D-Day invasion of Normandy that's a welcome corrective to the Spielberg-Hanks version and promises a lot more excitement to come ... Jolly good show, Delingpole'
Spectator

'Although extremely funny in parts the book is also, perhaps surprisingly, at times very moving ... truly compelling and feels authentic ... undoubtedly entertaining'
Sunday Telegraph
