(4 Sterne; 2 Bewertungen)

Frankie Goes to Flensburg By Jennifer Howarth, based on a true story.   In the spring of 1945, as the war in Europe was ending, Frank Howarth, a Major in the Royal Artillery and a lawyer in civilian life, was taken out of the frontline of the invading Allied army in Holland and sent with two other soldiers to Flensburg in Northern Germany. Their task was to set up a civilian administration - but what they found there was truly surprising. Starring Paul Popplewell and Sam Troughton, this is a moving account of an experience both different and unexpected for a Major at the end of the second world war.
