5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Book, 18 Nov. 2011
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 (Paperback)
This is a superb book for so many reasons.

The story itself is fascinating. It reads almost like a pulp novel but is wholly factual. Written by the author, about the author, it pulls no punches in telling his story from age 18 to age 90. It deals with his time as a soldier including his involvement in Alamein and Market Garden, his time as a POW, and his witnessing of the bombing of Dresden which left him a changed man. His marriage and the birth of his children, his divorce and remarriage, his work as a spy, his involvement in the fall of the Iron Curtain, and his feelings regarding all of these events.

It is a book that you will find hard to not read in a single sitting.

Be careful though, you may find yourself getting a little emotional at times.
