A remarkable book about war and its personal effects.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rifleman: A Front-Line Life from Alamein and Dresden to the Fall of the Berlin Wall (Kindle Edition)
This is a remarkable account of a very special life.
Victor Gregg does not pull any punches, whether describing the violence of the war in which he played a full part, his disgust at what all sides in that war did to innocent civilians and children, or his own faults in his personal life.
I have read many accounts of the war actions in some of which my own father took part, as well as books about brave, lucky and cheeky chancers, such as Agent Zigzag.
I believe this is the most telling of all the books about WW2 I have read.
Truly moving. I challenge anyone to read of his final moments with his first wife, without tears in their eyes.
