I have only read about 50 pages so far and it is very interesting to get a close up view of a soldier fighting in the desert. Well worth the money. Peter

It's a rare thing these days to hear a previously untold story of WWII, and even more so to hear a first hand account of POW forced labour. The majority of accounts of POW life published over the years have generally been from the pens of commisioned officers whose experiences were far different from that of the rank and file POW. Given his experiences, it's small wonder that it has taken Denis Avey all these years to tell his story, but I'm glad, both for him and us , that he has now been able to do so. Starting with an account of his service in the desert, which in itself was traumatic, he goes on to recount life as a POW in the infamous works of I G Farben at Auschwitz. Whilst there he was enraged to see the treatment metted out to the Jewish prisoners, and to get first hand information on the atrocities he swapped places on two occasions, staying overnight in the 'death camp'. His is a story of great personal courage, the triumph of humanity (in a very small way) over persecution, and the resulting effect it had on his own life and others. Not a story for the faint hearted, but one I would recommend and encourage to be read. It's overiding message for all is 'For evil to succeed all that is needed is for the righteous to do nothing'. Well written and very readable. Co-written with Rob Broomby. Mr Avey - I salute you.
