Fantastic story, 25 Mar. 2006
What an amazing story of courage, principle and sheer dogged heroism. Other reviewers have already described the story (thanks!) so I won't bother here, but you have to read this book!
Like everyone who comes across a story of real heroism - whether it is dragging yourself down a mountain as in Touching the Void or helping the underground resistance movement in France under the noses of the Nazis - you have to ask yourself what you would do in the same situation. I hope I would have joined the White Rose!
