    The Forgotten Soldier by Guy Sajer is a disturbingly good read. It's autobiographical about a French/German teenger who volunteered for the German army in WW2 and tells, in unromantic details, his life on the Eastern Front.

    Have to agree about Agent Zigzag aswell, it's a cracking good read. Read a few more bits about Eddie Chapman's life after the war, and I'm sure that's another book waiting to be written. Seemed like the sort of bloke you'd want to have a pint with, but wouldn't want your daughter to marry!

      There was a TV documentary done with Macintyre presenting which was about ZigZag / Chapman. There was actual footage of an interview with Chapman himself. Probs 3 or 4 years back.......... well worth digging out.

      Edit - Chapman @ 12;58

        In the middle of a very amusing novel by Jonas Jonasson "The accidental further adventures of the Hundred Year old Man". The first one he did " The Hundred Year old man who climbed out of the window and disappeared" is also very funny. So for those who like an intelligent, wry, amusing take on the world, they both come highly recommended (PS, despite the title, it's not Sid's autobiography vol 1 and 2 )

          I enjoyed the first book too, might give the second a try.
          Another I enjoyed was the unlikely pilgramage of Harold Fry.
          Oh let me get my hands on those .....

            If you enjoyed the first, you'll enjoy the second too I can guarantee it.

                    Just finished Jon Parkins. Was an easy read, he didnít like Phil Browne, Steve Parkin or Graham Alexander very much.
