To say that he was able to get out of a camp then chose to stay only so he could keep fornicating is a odd to say the least. Yes he brought back "some" food and radio bits but a prisoner's duty, especially in WWII, was to get home and continue the fight. If nothing else at least to get some of his other buddies out but he was too selfish because that would have put an end to his sexual forays. I find his preoccupation with his erections and the memories of the smell of his lover's genitals a tad weird for a man of his age to be sharing in a book.
His own father had the right reaction hearing of his lover. He cavorted with the enemy and dishonoured his country by not using his opportunities to get himself and some of his mates out. As a veteran myself I would love to speak with men whom were in camp with "Jim" because my feeling is that they probably would remember him more as a self-entered bastard rather than this amazing guy.
Frankly any of the other men who survived what he did could tell the same story much better without constant references to their groin. Sorry Horace but you bored me. No stars!
What I read, saw and heard is written in this book, although the "loving" was not part of my duty. I read "The Rise & Fall of the Third Reich" prior to rotation. I re-read it again, one year later. Upon returning to Canada, I read it a third time. Wm. L. Shirer & also Leon Uris (Mila18) are dead (no pun intended) accurate in their assessments.
This book, to me, was a "page turner". My future grand-son-in-law read it (his was paper copy) at the same time as I & we both came to the same conclusion - awesome.
