Artist turn .....Soldier,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spandau: The Secret Diaries (Paperback)
“Diaries are usually the accompaniment of a lived life. This one stands in place of a life”
Indeed I read this in the diary of Albert Speer, which he clandestinely organised to compile; day to day; daily accounts of life spent in Spandu jail. I read cover to cover, very moving account of his life, his perils, a true testament of his conviction to the cause he held, as a confessor. As being an Artist, self indignation of guilt caused him great losses to his profession, what he built and what remain at present day is regardless. What remain; his mark on the history is undeniably profound and even in the heat of Spandau which lasted 20 complete years; he shown great courage and in genius to preserve his moral value and meet his self demon of his own truth head on.
In my opinion an Artist born to strife perfect ness, who simply lost in the crowd of soldiers.
