Interesting first hand account of a WWI soldier's capture, imprisonment, and escape from the Germans. Errors in this recording: the label of each chapter was one ahead of the recorded chapter and a recording of the final chapter is missing. Also, the reader of chapter 4 was not a native English speaker. Her accent made it impossible for me to understand the majority of that chapter.

Excitement, adventure, and really wild things

(5 Sterne)

Vivid, emotional, and compelling account of Canadian and British prisoners and how they endure (and try to escape from) German POW camps during World War I. Well written. And well read by various LibriVox volunteers.

really good

Ditto's to the kudos below. Needs a better title tho; it no way reflects the excellent book.

the reader in Chapter 4 is hard to understand. must be English as a second language.
