From the cover: “This is something new from Victor Canning, the author of “Mr. Finchley Discovers His England”. “Green Battlefield” has pretentions to be classed as something more than just a story, but at the same time it is a tale of action, a romance, an adventure. And it passes one of the first tests of fiction triumphantly. It is topical, but not with the sort of topicality which will date it. The hero is an English pilot officer who escapes by parachute from a burning; Blenheim and comes down in Normandy…
Victor Canning opens the story with Patrick in mid-air; you come to earth with him and from then on his adventures are yours.”
