Top Customer Reviews
If you have enjoyed "9 Lives" you will like this book.
Written from a 3rd person perspective and filled with more background information, and anecdotes from other people.
This helps to form a much better picture of in some circumstances how lucky Al Deere was to survive the war (his autobiography is not called 9 Lives for nothing) and also what sort of a person he really was.
