POW Life, 8 Nov 2010
Very interesting book about life in various prison camps in Germany in World War two. Younger had wanted to write from an early age and has produced a number of books, but this is the best one. However, on his own admission, it is not an adventure story like The Great Escape or The Wooden Horse, but written as a day to day account of life in a POW camp, with all the boredom and frustration that went with it.He was a personal friend of my father in the RAF Ex-POW Association, whose numbers are now, sadly depleting. He is around 90 now but the book was written in the 1950s and the youngish style shows through. The hardback copy is very difficult to get hold of.
