Author Peter Tunstall tells listeners early on that his account of being a POW in Germany during WWII isn't an adventure story. Still, John Lee's hearty narration sometimes makes it sound like one as he keeps the British airman's bravery and enthusiasm on listeners' minds, especially in the early chapters about young Tunstall's love of flying. Even the stories about escape attempts are laced with Tunstall's wry humor and warm feelings toward his fellow prisoners. However, listeners will hear more than good yarns. The failed escape attempts carry a sense of frustration and risk. POWs' daily problems, hunger most particularly, also are made clear, showing the constant undercurrent of war's human toll.
