A Welcome View from the Other Side,
This review is from: Spitfire on My Tail: A View from the Other Side (Hardcover)
A lot has been written about the Battle of Britain from the British point of view and this book helps restore the balance and hopefully will impart a little understanding along the way.
The book is subtitled `A View from the Other Side', and is precisely that. If like myself you have read, watched and listened to views and stories from the Battle of Britain this year you may have wondered what drove the more level headed Germans (not the Nazis) to make war on so many of their neighbours. This book should begin to clear some of the fog and also make you realise that they are not necessarily the well organised, forward thinking, rule making automatons that some people imagine. In fact, it would appear that they are actually quite British in their behaviour and given the same conditions we may well have reacted in a similar manner.
