This was a good and say read. I have read many books on World War 2 but they focus on England, France, etc. It was interesting to read about a different country that I had very little knowledge of. The character in this book seems to have lead a very interesting life no the writer did well to present. However, there was occasions when I felt like the writer overstated the situation. Overall it was a pick for me, lent it to my dad to read.
