Not so much a story of the escape itself, but the detective story of find those who murdered the 50 escaped airmen. I was a bit put off to learn of harsh interrogation in London of captured Germans including allegations of torture. I could actually see some of the anger of the Germans for the "Terror" bombers. However, it's hard not to be reminded of what the Germans did to London. It was sad to hear of those that got away for various reasons. Certainly a long cast of very diverse characters. Interesting to read. This was one of those books that I had trouble setting aside. I adore the film version of the Great Escape so in some ways I'm seeing the Hollywood murder of Roger, Mac, and all the rest. At the same time, the reality is even more chilling.

What disappointed you about Human Game?
I was really looking forward to listening to this, as the plot sounded very interesting. However, I found it very difficult to get into and it was hard to remember the names. This could just be me, but it was hard to keep track of people when not seeing their names written down. I will probably give the book a go, but for me, the audiobook was a disappointment.

A concise telling of German brutality by both German service personnel and the civilian population who really thought the Allies should not have done what they had done! which has wrongly lasted until the present day. Bomber Command stood for bravery and freedom.
