I personally found the book of intense interest for the understanding it provided me of the structure of the Luftwaffe POW interrogation infrastructure. It intersected with my own study of an uncle's B-24 Liberator that was shot down over Germany in August of 1944. While my uncle did not survive to be captured, some of his crew did and this book brought home the reality of what they faced, how they were treated and the various circumstances at the time that you just will not find documented elsewhere in such an engaging fashion. I unreservedly recommend this book to all of you interested in learning how a true master of the craft plied his trade - that of interrogation.
