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.

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.

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.

Format: Paperback
I've read the authors book The Damned and quite liked it. This book, though, it is well written but hard to follow. The chronological nature of the snippets concerning so many men makes it a chore to read. The underlying religious themes detracted from the history being presented. The incessant detailed explanations of religious events was irritating and almost had me setting the book aside only partially read. I persevered and am glad I did, but it was a slog. Spelling mistakes in this day and age should never appear in a book of this calibre.

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.
