I read this after the 'Spitfire' book. The writer was an exceptionally daring man who was obsessed with escaping from Canadian POW camps.I suppose if you're prepared to go up in a not too reliable fighter aircraft and risk being shot down or having a fatal accident,then escaping is relatively tame. He must have been a handful for the Canadians. He is a decent man, but hardly questions the regime for which he fought. As far as he was concerned,Germany was hard done by at the end of WW1, and that justified all they did under Hitler.He claims that he wasn't a Nazi, but it was the enthusiastic support for their military adventures by the author, and people like him, that caused so much death and misery. I would like to read the third volume in this series,but it's over £50,so I pass.
