Book cover

With Rimington by L. March Phillipps is an enthralling novel that seamlessly blends elements of mystery, adventure, and historical fiction. Set against the backdrop of World War II, the story follows the life of the protagonist, Rimington, a resilient and likable character who embarks on a perilous journey.

Phillipps' writing style is vivid and lyrical, painting a vivid picture of the war-torn landscape. The author's attention to detail is commendable, as he masterfully portrays the atmosphere and tension of the era. The reader is transported to the bustling streets of London, the treacherous battlefields of Europe, and the secretive corridors of espionage.

One of the standout aspects of the novel is the character development. Rimington is not just an ordinary hero; he is flawed, introspective, and haunted by his past. As the story progresses, we witness his transformation from a naive young man to a seasoned spy, trying to navigate the treacherous waters of espionage. The supporting cast is equally well-crafted, each adding depth and complexity to the story.

Moreover, the plot of With Rimington is intricately woven, keeping readers intrigued and engaged from beginning to end. The author expertly balances action with introspection, allowing the reader to delve into Rimington's internal struggles while also experiencing heart-pounding sequences of espionage. The pacing is superb, with twist after twist keeping you on the edge of your seat, eagerly turning the pages.

The historical backdrop serves as a fascinating context for the narrative. Phillipps demonstrates a deep understanding of the time period, effortlessly integrating real events into the storyline. The attention to historical accuracy adds a layer of authenticity and makes the story feel all the more immersive.

If there is one minor critique, it would be that the dialogue occasionally feels a bit stilted. While the prose is beautifully crafted, some conversations come across as overly formal. However, this does not detract significantly from the overall enjoyment of the novel.

In conclusion, With Rimington by L. March Phillipps is an engaging and compelling read that seamlessly intertwines history and fiction. It is a testament to the author's skill in creating well-rounded characters and crafting a gripping plot. For fans of historical fiction and spy thrillers, this book is a must-read.

DEDICATION

This book is dedicated to the memory of my friend Lieutenant Gustavus Coulson, D.S.O., of the King's Own Scottish Borderers, who fell at Lambrechtfontein on May 19, 1901.

The Colonel in command writes that in that action Lieutenant Coulson rallied some men and saved a gun from falling into the enemy's hands. He lost his life in bringing off a wounded man from under the enemy's fire. For this deed, the last of many deeds as brave, he was recommended for the Victoria Cross.

I knew him from his childhood, and on the march from Lindley to Pretoria, and thence far south to Basutoland, we often rode together, and talked of West Country sport and his Devonshire home and faces that we both knew and loved there.

A keen soldier, a cheery comrade, and a brave and kindly English gentleman, he stands, it seems to me, the very type of those gallant boys who in this South African war have died for England .

PREFACE

These letters were written without any idea of publication, and it was not until I had been home some months that suggestions from one or two sources caused me to think of printing them... Continue reading book >>
