This is an interesting and unusual story of a Luftwaffe Officer, starting from his crashlanding in the UK in Oct.1940 and continuing with his experiences as a prisoner of war and his many attempts to escape from his prison camp in Canada.
Whilst he doesn't of course deny his patriotism for his fatherland, he neverless shows a degree of humility unusual amongst many of his contempories who have writen similar accounts of being a german fighter pilot in WW2.
Steinhilper comes over as a basicaly decent and thoughtful man who has benefited from his experiences and has a valid and worthwhile story to tell.
