Product description

About the Author

Lisa Frei was born in Ismaning, a village in Bavaria, Germany, near Munich. She came to England in 1962 to be an au pair girl in order to learn the English language. She had studied English for some years, but when she arrived in England she found she couldn’t understand a word. However, she soon learned, took a couple of exams and then got married. In 1993 Lisa became a widow and in 2002 she moved into a cosy little semi-detached house in a small village in Nottinghamshire, to be nearer to her son Michael. Her daughter Angela lives abroad, but comes to see visit quite frequently. Lisa absolutely adores writing as well as reading other people's writing. She also loves studying languages (currently French and Arabic) and learning about other cultures and how people live. Lisa firmly believes we all have a story to tell and that anybody who wants to should write. === May we learn to live, to love, to tolerate and understand, And then may God be pleased that he created Man. Lisa Frei

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very thoughtful and ultimately enjoyable book by Ms Frei, in which she relates the effects of the war on both her immediate family and friends in the small rural village of Ismaning, Bavaria. Her two brothers fought for the Wehrmacht in two different theatres of war, but both are not convinced of the cause they are fighting for. She portrays in some style the close knit nature of her family though both dark and lighter times, and you can only say she has produced a fitting tribute to her kin. An enlightening read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Homefront personal history. 21 Dec. 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a Gebirgsjäger historian and collector, I was taken by the title of the book and was looking forward to a read about the mountain troops. The book turned out to be more of a Homefront history which was just as enjoyable. Having lived in the area of Germany during the 1980's where most of the book takes place, it was interesting to find out more of it's history during the war. Personal accounts make history alive. Well done and worth the read. Drei mal Horrido!
5.0 out of 5 stars A View from the Other Side 18 Jun. 2016
By Joseph Ferguson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A rare and excellent look at WW II and Nazi Germany from the inside through a poor family's eyes as they are forced to follow the absurd decrees of Hitler, while sons and brothers are conscripted into the Nazi war machine. Even after the war ends they continue to be starved and brutalized by occupying forces. A must for historians and WW II buffs.
