The term seeks to capture the uncertainty regarding own capability, adversary capability, and adversary intent during an engagement, operation, or campaign. Charlie Gresham and his wife live on a cliff overlooking the English Channel. Since the beginning of the war in 1939, Charlie has been a plane spotter, calling in on his radio, the type of aircraft, the number of guns, and the nation for which the plane is delivering its payload.

A novel that seamlessly blends military intrigue, relentless suspense, and a baffling mystery, The Advocate is a harrowing account by two master storytellers who dare to imagine what can really happen in the fire of war, where good and evil aren't always what they seem. Here one man must pierce the military's impenetrable wall of silence to prove that even in the midst of a world war, murder is still a crime. The AdvocateOn a chalky bluff overlooking the windswept English Channel, an old man watches a horrifying spectacle unfold. Within a matter of seconds, one American P-47 Thunderbolt fires on another, mercilessly driving the crippled plane into the sea. And the old man, his cottage strafed, barely escapes with his life.  The year is 1943: The Russians have defeated Hitler at Stalingrad. North Africa has fallen to the Allies. And the Americans, after two disastrous years, are winning the war in the Pacific. Now, in England, American fliers wage a bitter air war against the Luftwaffe. But what really happened in the skies above the Channel is something no one--least of all the military--is prepared to have revealed. To find out the truth, the Judge Advocate's office calls on a brilliant, cynical, homesick lawyer. The last thing Harry Voss wanted was a case that had every indication of becoming a political powder keg. But Harry, a man of honor, cannot turn his back on the possibility that the incident over the Channel may not have been an accident--but an act of cold-blooded murder.  Harry has no idea what he is getting into. For his investigation will lead through a labyrinth of military politics, where ambitious, powerful men guard their turf and soldiers guard their secrets with an unbreakable code of silence. For Harry, the case becomes his own personal war, as he uncovers a series of murderous events that detonate up the chain of command. He only wants justice for a crime. And he is willing to risk his own career and life to get it, as he begins a dangerous journey into the dark heart of war. It is here that Harry Voss will dare to enter a world where heroes are killers, wrong becomes right, and even angels must dip their wings into the fire of hell itself

I don't know why anyone would give this book less than 5 stars. It is an authentic, muddy, engrossing mystery set in England during World War II. It is not a "war novel", although of course any book set in that time is a war novel in some way. This instead is a "legal thriller" with an admirable hero who is forced to choose between his code of honor and his career, while fighting a cover-up by his superiors. I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries with a lawyer as the "detective". If you like this, check out his Defender as well.

I am a stubborn reader. This equates to never giving up on a book. I never gave up on this one but got precious little back. The premise was intriguing and that is why I cracked the spine but it never fulfilled. A bizarre style choice was the unidentifiable reporter that lazily filled in the plot. This proved to be very distracting and frustrating. Another irritant was the American service men sounding completely British...where were the editors!? Oh well, enough said. I liked the idea but there was little in execution.

This is an extremely well researched novel, with some solid characterization. I'm surprised at the depth of the character studies in some cases, even background on characters who are dead even before the story begins. I agree the ending is a little bit of a let down, I was hoping for a firm resolution of the events that occurred rather than the somewhat hazy ambiguity. Nor is it clear why the lead accused (who is depicted as a very honorable and courageous man) would do what he did.

The research conducted by the authors is generally of a very high quality. As for the inaccuracies pointed out by a previous review.

-- Ireland was independent in WW-II (although under major British pressure especially after the USA entered the war and removed any countervailing diplomatic pressure on England). How is that an inaccuracy in this novel ? Where does it say otherwise ? Northern Ireland was under British control.

-- There were and are many parts of the British Army still designated as Royal Army <Unit>, and indeed the term Royal Army is largely used in the book in reference to units like logistics and transport units ("Royal Army Lorry", for instance. This designation is correct.

-- The use of Captain to refer to an RAF officer is indeed a mistake.

Another part that seemed unrealistic was the assumption that the Belgian underground would not be aware of what had happened and would not realy this to the Belgian Government in Exile. . And certainly, the Belgian government in exile would have protested.

I usually avoid "co-written" books like the plague. But this book intrigued me enough to give it a go. It is a sleeper of a book and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys WWII fiction. The characters are believable, the authors get the tone and feel of the times right. You pick up little nuances like calling a Rolls Royce a Rollers. I chuckled at the prospect of Harry Voss fighting the intractable gear shift of a jeep and the MP sargent finally offering to park it for him. This stuff rings true. The story itself is well crafted and has enough surprises to keep you interested. It is not a hell bent action story and may leave some readers who are used to that type of story unsatisfied. The military details are right, I kept seeing scenes of 12 O'Clock High running through my mind. It was enjoyable to see a rumpled, overweight main character in contrast to so many super heroes that are now the norm. If you are looking for a different take on WWII air combat and a military legal mystery rolled together, this is it.

On August 15, 1943 five American soldiers stationed in Chillingham, England flew over Germany on a mission. On their return home, one of the fighters shot down a single engine plane in an apparent friendly fire incident. A shepherd and his wife watched the event until the pilot notices them and tries to kill them too.

Colonel Joseph Ryan assigns his friend Lieutenant Harry Voss to investigate the accident. Harry goes to the scene of the incident where he learns from the shepherd and his wife what they saw. Harry also notices that the film on the nose of the plane is missing and believes one of the two survivors destroyed it. Soon one of the men confesses to killing his peers, but Harry observes discrepancies in the story, as if he is hiding something. A superior officer tells Harry to back off, but the tenacious officer continues to make inquiries even if it costs him his career.

World War II fans will get a feel for the way it was for a Yankee stationed in England during the Big One. Readers learn that there is quite a difference between allies and friends. THE ADVOCATE provides a look inside the armed forces community especially policing and passing judgment on one of their own. The story moves slowly forward because the authors want their audience to use all five senses to savor the history. The characters are fascinating, noting Harry and his antagonist as the real stars. Bill A. Mesce Jr. and Steven G. Szilagyi have quite a future ahead of them if this historical war tale is any indication of their talent.

All the action takes place right in the beginning of the book which is good form for the author; it sucks you into reading the rest of the book. The balance of the book is mostly talk, albeit well written. It ends up as one man standing up to the higher-up military brass. This is probably more true-to-life than most of us (who opt for more action and contrived situations) like in this genre. Not a bad read but it is ambivalent and, with two authors, one understands why. If you like books about the military and WWII,, you'll like this book. For most of us it is the kind of a book you carry in the car for when you have to stand in a line at the post office. Good (yawn) but not too much so.
