The Last Escape, 23 Dec 2003
This is quite simply one of the best and most moving books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. It is the often overlooked story of the marches forced upon the British, Commonwealth and American Prisoners of war as the Germans began to walk them from areas of Russia and Poland back towards Berlin after it became apparent that the war was coming to an end.
What these men went through (and largely survived) has to be read to be belived and 'humbling' doesn't begin to describe the feelings you are left with after reading the story of these forgotton hero's.
A beautiful, hard back, book which would be a bargain at twice the price!
