    Not too many people served with the German Army in WW1 and the British Army in WW2 but this book brings us the tale of one such person. Serving in the German Artillery all through WW1 then having to leave Germany in the 1930s because he was Jewish, eventually joining the British Army in WW2 following a period of internment. A fascinating book that has been reviewed by Untallguy - link to the review below.

    OK Guys, I have found time to close off this competition - this retirement lark is soooo busy!

    Anyhoo, the winners are:

    Emails have gone to Skid2 & CC asking for their name and address and a quick response would be appreciated, bu LeoR, in his wisdom put his home address as his email! Happy to get it sent to LeoRoverman but if you want it properly done, and it is not me sending these out, then PM me your name! :rolleyes:
