Reads like a story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Do The Birds Still Sing In Hell? (Paperback)
I've read loads of true accounts of people's war time exploits. This is like the sun reader version for half wits. Every scene of violence or sex has the impression of exaggeration. The ghost writer has just added his own twist to it and has spoiled a good book. What a load of rubbish. Horace is like a cross between James Bond and Del Boy Trotter

Ken Scott says:
I think you should apologise to Horace's widow Brenda who was grossly offended at your review calling her late husband a liar. When Horace and Brenda read the first galley proof of the book some years ago they were moved to tears at how accurately his story was portrayed. The trouble with mere mortals like me and you is we can't comprehend what these men went through. You don't know how much your vicious words hurt an old widow.

These remarks sound as made up as the actual book.
