This book will obviously appeal to an Australian and New Zealand audience, but I also found it to be of more general appeal, providing a look at an interesting cross-section of Fighter Command's pilots, as well as the way in which the Anzacs integrated into both the wartime RAF and Britain.

One of those books that no naval enthusiast can afford to be without.

A hive of interesting facts and almost unbelievable stories about Adolf Hitler... Well worth a look [and] well worth a read.

The book reads well and is written in an easy to read style. I admit to generally reading books in bite-sized chunks but this one I became engrossed in and could not put it down. The narrative is very personal and absorbing as it details many of the escape attempts by people on board various ships, boats and rafts. Some of the stories are harrowing, but this is due to the honesty of the author in his writing.
