The story ended with the Russians at some distance from the camp - no idea what happened next. I'm sure their arrival and the prisoners trip after could have been interesting. No luck.
Seemed odd to stop there.

What did you love best about Those Who Fall?
Excellent writing and descriptive ability. Memorable characters. Phenomenal accounts of bombing raids over Germany in WWII, the best I have read. Insight into life behind the scenes on the ground at air bases. Interactions with local Italian population. Have remembered this powerful and moving narrative since the first time I read it 25+ years ago, astonished and delighted to see that anyone made the effort to present an audiobook version.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Narrator and perhaps his commanding officer.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The performance was pedestrian, but the content is very strong.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The first account of a bombing raid over Germany was much more than war porn. The superb descriptions are evocative and tense.
Any additional comments?
Thrilled to see this available! No-brainer!
