This is such a cracking story - I nearly read the whole book right off. A real 'page turner' relating the first hand memoir of an SOE agent caught red handed by the Gestapo in Tunisia in 1943, then held in various concentration camps in Germany for two and a half years.
The author tries in vain to understand how the supposedly civilised German people became the monsters who staffed the Gestapo, the SS and the concentration camps. His ways of surviving the camps was to apply his considerable intelligence. A remarkable testimony which I highly recommend.

This new addition to the Images of War series from Pen and Sword is one I particularly like. The author has put together a well chosen set of archive photos which provide an excellent reference for what it meant for the soldiers in the Afrika Korps to live and to fight a war in the harsh environment of the North African desert.
