He doesn't discover till he's assigned to that very same precise unit, known as TRR-2, in occupied Germany. Fattorini is still keen about the incident, attempting to ferret out the truthfrom his "mad" colonel, a number of fellow majors (his personal promoting is a secret to him) and the boyish, loquacious Capt. Audley. in basic terms after an exercize in lifting a German DP scientist, during which the British double-cross the americans, does Fattorini observe what's quite occurring: a British try to co-opt high-level German scientists from lower than the noses of the Russians and discover a Russian operative of their midst. There are tricks of Evelyn Waugh's wartime trilogy and certain traits towards Anthony Powell's obliqueness in his A Dance to the song of Time sequence. yet obliqueness right here turns into annoyingly talky, and the tone of anguished cynicism turns out stagey. this isn't Price's most sensible attempt.
