4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting story, 9 May 2014

This review is from: The Great Escaper: The Life and Death of Roger Bushell - Love, Betrayal, Big X and The Great Escape (Kindle Edition)
Thanks to the film, most people know who Roger Bushell was and this book helps to make him more three dimensional. He was clearly a bit of a handful and the author has succeeded in gathering together the story of his upbringing. Napoleon said that he preferred his generals to be lucky rather than intelligent and it is very clear that Roger Bushell had just about everything in life except luck. Being shot down on his very first clash with the Luftwaffe rather sums up his war. A strong personality and a natural leader he made his mark and the final tunnel had much about it that was ingenious. It's a very interesting book about a very interesting character who, like so many of his generation, might have done truly great things had he lived.
