This book is a memoir of a far from average experience of WW11. From hearing the declaration of war in a bicycle shop, experiences of joining up and then to the desert war and on to a PoW camp, this is an infantry man’s account of life and death as must have been experienced by many on both sides. Later shipped to Germany and liberated by the advancing Russians, the author writes with an authentic recall of events and of friends lost and made.
Not a typical sailing club library book, but a worm’s eye view of army life in wartime and a very good read.
