3.0 out of 5 stars memory's with pride and some prejudice., 20 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mr Verton gives a very graphic picture of war. It shows how cruel and cheap life can be. I think he has difficulty in accepting that the ss were also perpetrators in a lot of atrocities and his unit may be free of guilt but cannot completely ignore his fellow men. However a. Crime which has remained fairly well unknown has been the treatment of german POWs after the war and also the Prussian people who were treated appallingly after the war.

History is always written by the victors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Innocence lost, 16 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A truly remarkable book a sad time in history when innocence was lost for so many. Well written which gives you a real feel for what the author and her family suffered. It also high lights a part of history which is not covered much in many books.
The journey is remarkable considering the route they chose and the hardship they suffered. it was hard to put the book down. I found myself immersed in thier troubles. It also shows how the Russians treated the German people especially the female's of all ages.

I would have liked to know how the father faired and whether he survived the war
