Book Excerpt: 
. . .Page_28" id="Page_28">[28]This Crab was a fool in his dealings with the prisoners, and various little incidents occurred between him and his charges. On one occasion the order against smoking on parade was re-read to the prisoners, and then the German officers kept their eyes open for smoke for a time after this.

The Crab one day saw an English officer smoking and took his name, with the result that the victim got three days cells. In the course of his campaign against smoking, he next came up against the French.

One of these was observed to be smoking and accused of it. However, he declared his absolute innocence and the Crab was non-plussed. On looking round he found that the whole crowd of Frenchmen were smoking, and roaring with laughter at him. This was too much for him to tackle and he gave it up.

Occasionally our allies received him with a chorus of coughs or suppressed cheers if he came on parade late.

Interesting easy read

خاطرات یک زندانی بریتانیا در آلمان طی جنگ جهانی اول و ماجرای فرارش از اسارت که سیزده روز طول کشید.
داستان جذابیت خاصی نداره، چون نویسنده هم خود همین اسیر بریتانیایی بوده که خاطراتش رو نوشته، کار هنری هم به حساب نمیاد.
ولی کتاب روانی بود و راحت خونده شد. کمابیش هیجانی هم داشت، ولی نه چندان.
از اون کتاب‌

A quick and easy read. Just not a particularly interesting one, to me. The author's rhetoric, while understandable, gets a bit tiresome in places.

Easy read. The historical aspect was informative. Well worth the time.
