The title ‘Crusade in Europe’ is a slight misnomer, for the story starts where it should, with the high-risk landings in Morocco and Algeria of the first American force to cross the Atlantic, the men being as green as most of their generals, including Supreme Commander Ike. Notably he hesitated to criticise his corps commander Lloyd Fredendall, now universally derided as a buffoon, while fretting needlessly about the chances of Spain entering the war at this relatively late stage.

The sixth book of the Department Z series is even more exiting and intense than the earlier episodes. The action is still in the mid-30's Europe (1935 was a busy year for Mr. Creasey!) and the simmering tensions are becoming more apparent. The League of Nations is attempting to tie things together and stabilize the world. Craigie and company are intimately involved with a huge conspiracy but don't know the ultimate purpose of it all... Returning characters abound as help from all quarters is called upon and not always successfully. The pace is excellent (I read this in about 4 hours time) and the plot absorbing.

The sixth book about Department Z offers all the action and excitement readers of the series expect, set in places and times very different from our own. Indeed, readers may well wonder whether even in the 1930s they existed quite how Creasey portrays them. A tense flight across northern Europe in demanding blizzard conditions underscores the fantastic developments in aero technology while the political landscape is unrecognizable. The text, apparently revised in 1968, wisely eschews the near-impossible task of updating, and leaves us a quaintness not to be found in later spy fiction. I was surprised, though, to find "Orientals" embarking on a plot to invade Europe, and the phrase "the Yellow Menace" having escaped deletion, which may cause consternation in some quarters. The plot in this Department Z story is one of the more involved, an intriguing aspect being a new recruit to Craigie's team suspected of being a double agent ... or do we have a double-double agent? Craigie "with real feeling" admits to the new man, "I've never heard anything like this... You're simply sitting with your face in front of a gun, and another one at the back of your head." Regular Department Z followers will be pleased to find a further title not in print for many years.
