The title is somewhat misleading as I felt only a small part of Denis Avey's memoir is the title of the book. However, in saying that, I guess he had to tell his whole story with a lead up to that particular event. I did start to think I would never get to the main part though! It is truly unbelievable and an amazing story, which I am glad he has shared it (with the help of Rob Broomby). It makes a change from reading pure fiction and was told in an easy style. It was hard not to make comparisons at times with The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. I was reminded of the factual nature of the book with the photos in the middle. by Wendy SEKULOFFunder review
Take this with a Pinch of Salt
I have not read this book.... But read on...
I am familiar with the story line.
It was first published as "The Password is Courage" about a chap called Charlie Coward, a British Soldier who did exactly this.
He was played in a film of the same name by Dirk Bogarde.
Suggest before buying this you do a Google on the title of the book to read the various accounts of contradictory info and doubting fellow soldiers.
On an other matter, how did so many tiny children survive Nazi death camps to go on to write survivor books? We should be told. by Richard Middletonunder review
