But it is much more than a brilliantly told crime story. Night Exercise gives an accurate and intensely interesting picture of Britain's Home Guard at work—preparing for the day when thousands of Nazi paratroops might drop from the skies upon the green fields of England, Mr. Rhode pictures for us a village company of Home Guards on a big night exercise during which Colonel Chalgrove mysteriously disappears. It is soon obvious that a crime has been committed—a murder in which the finding of the body becomes as important as tracking down the murderer.
