4.0 out of 5 stars Persoanl history on a global scale, 25 April 2011
This review is from: Rifleman - A Front Line Life (Hardcover)
Life as they say can be stranger than fiction and that's exactly what occurs within this autobiographical story by Victor Gregg who tells of his life experiences during the Second World War, from marching in Africa through Italy as well as being an eyewitness to the devastation of Dresden.

It's beautifully written and brings a human personal look to events that are pretty static and impersonal in the history books. Add to this a good understanding of pace, a solid comprehension of keeping it linear and it's a tale that should be passed on to others to read. With so much of recent history being lost with the elderly generation we need to get these stories down so that when the last one passes the stories are there otherwise we'll be left with a history that has no connection, cold and sterile.

Add to this events in his life after the war and it's a tale that will have many an author scrabbling to create an equally large as life character.
