CGiii Comment

A thoroughly enjoyable caper.

It has a clear message - when gentlemen are no longer required by the State - they revert to extreme measures.

It's polite and intelligent and has a very 'out' villain - brave for its day.

The(ir) Blurb...

Involuntarily-retired Colonel Hyde recruits seven other dissatisfied ex-servicemen for a special project. Each of the men has a skeleton in the cupboard, is short of money, and is a service-trained expert in his field. The job is a bank robbery, and military discipline and planning are imposed by Hyde and second-in-command Race on the team, although civilian irritations do start getting in the way.
