Small Wars by Sadie Jones

Small Wars is easily as good as Sadie Jones' first novel The Outcast. Both books capture the stifling and oppressive atmostphere of 1950s Britain.

Set in Cyprus, during a period of conflict with the British Empire, the story revolves around Hal Treherne a professional soldier and his wife Clara.
The conflict between the EKOA cypriot terrorists and the British soliders escalates, resulting in bloody skirmishs.

Hal is changed by action and the relationship between Hal and Clara becomes difficult and strained, if I write any more I will give away the plot.....a must read!
