5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling story of courage and heroism, 3 Dec 2009

This review is from: Boldness Be My Friend (True Stories from World War II) (Paperback)
Richard Pape was an airman who served in WWII, and was a fantastic writer, to boot. Shot down over Holland, his factual account of his life as a PoW, and his daring escape attempts, moves along at a breakneck pace from page one. This true Yorkshire hero must have had balls like coconuts, as parts of his story made my hair curl, because of the privations he suffered, and the things he had to do, to survive - He was incredibly gutsy, tough, resourceful, and determined - and 150% courageous! After reading this book, I feel even more indebted to him and all the men of my father's generation who served in WWII. Read it, and be thankful that men like him fought for our freedoms in those dark days
