Unforgettable tales of heroism, bravery and escape—the remarkable true stories of Canadian soldiers and civilians lost behind enemy lines in the Second World War

The Forgotten tells the story of the more than 10,000 Canadian servicemen, merchant mariners and civilians whose war ended in surrender, capture and imprisonment, through the eyes of a group of men in Hitler’s grasp: Private Stan Darch, who had already survived the cauldron of Dieppe; seventeen civilian priests and brothers captured at sea, one of whom risked his life to hide an escape tunnel after the Great Escape; Edward Carter-Edwards, who endured the hell of Buchenwald concentration camp; and RCAF Sergeant Ian MacDonald, who, having been on the run for six weeks after being shot down, was betrayed to the Gestapo and survived six weeks in the notorious Fresnes Prison in Paris. To survive the often horrid conditions of Stalags across Europe and the hunger marches through the freezing snows of the winter of 1944–45, these otherwise ordinary Canadians demonstrated extraordinary valour and commitment to each other and to the Allied cause.

Nathan M. Greenfield, author of the Governor General’s Award finalist The Damned, shares never-before-heard stories of these forgotten Canadians in thrilling and often heartbreaking detail in a book thateveryone will remember.

4.0 out of 5 stars the forgotten Jan. 12 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
ForgottenBasically a very good book, and historically accurate, based on my own experiences as a P.O.W. from 1943 to 1945. A little too much emphasis on the
religious aspect, with all the material about the priests, whose ship was captured by the Germans and who apparently were imprisoned in many of the camps.
In the two plus years I spent in (and out of) Stalag 8B, Lamsdorf, Poland, I saw none of them.
However, the rest of the book seemed very accurate to me, although I was referred to 16 or 18 times, my name was misspelled once, and I was commissioned once (to Pilot Officer - I was
only a Sgt-Pilot} and my book "Over The Wire" from which this information obviously came, was not even mentioned.
However, despite that, Forgotten is an excellent book in all respects and I would recommend it to anyone interested in an accurate picture of life in Germany's POW Camps, and of the
many escapers and evaders, many of whom were never heard of again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read April 2 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book took me on a true inspiring journey, where young Canadian boys fought, they were captured, they were murdered and only a few reunited. These true stories,of men, had profound courage, they trusted complete strangers whom they could not communicate and yet put their lives in their hands. As a result of this book, I have dove into the past of my grandparent's lives as well as my husband's. This book as rooted a strong desire to visit the places my grandparents fought, where they were POW's, were injured, lost their lives, bodies which were never found. Thank you Mr. Greenfield, you have captured stories of Canadian service-men in my heart, ones in which will never be forgotten. A book which left you truly inspired.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book for Teachers As Well As WW ll Scholars March 18 2014

There are many events in this book that are not known to the general public. Anyone with an interest in history would find it fascinating. Don't be put off that it happened 75 years ago-there are many common events today that parallel. Read it.

At last the truth has come out about Canadiens role in the great escape, a far cry from the fake Hollwood movie depicting it as an American story. Shame.
