4.5 Years: A WW2 true story by David Taylor

I was expecting a serious book on being a prisoner of war. But Dave turned out to be quite a chirpy resourceful young man who although was a prisoner for 4.5 years, managed to keep his wits and sanity throughout with his very interesting “projects” ranging from escape plans, handmade knives, custom made coffee pots to music. Amazingly he returned home relatively unscathed and seemed to lead quite a charmed life playing golf in his retirement. It really felt like I was merely reading the diary of a young man who constantly gets up to mischief with his pals to “make time fly by” instead of a serious WW2 story. A relatively lighthearted easy to read WW2 story thanks to the voice of Dave who seems to take things in his stride easily.  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
