This review is from: Spitfire on My Tail: A View from the Other Side (Hardcover)
I read this shortly after reading Galland's 'The First and the Last' and found it an excellent companion book, written in a far more personally engaging manner and bringing a high degree of humanity into the equation. As a British reader I find it often tempting to demonise past national enemies and this book did a good job of being honest about failings but also giving the sense that had I been in the same position I might have done the same thing. I haven't yet re-read it but I will definitely be keeping this on my bookshelf to re-read in future. It's not easy cheerful reading but it is very good.
