5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for WW2 devotees, 27 Mar. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ten Minutes to Buffalo: The Story of Germany's Great Escaper (Hardcover)
This is the second volume in a trilogy, the first being 'Spitfire on my Tail' which introduces us to the author from childhood in a troubled Germany, through his pre-war military career, then to his experiences in the Battle of Britain leading to his eventual shoot-down in England. After describing his impressions of a bountiful country which he and his colleagues had been assured 'was on its knees', he is transported to internment in Canada where he begins a career as a prolific escapee. His descriptions of these escapades, and general camp life, are written in wonderfully detailed prose which is a joy to read, mainly because of course so little is known about the circumstances which prevailed in that place and time. Absolutely loved it, as will you if you enjoy good war stories. An unmissable part of the turmoil known as WW2.
