Those of us born in the 1930s and through the 1940s know about WWII, and the Third Reich. Still there are so many secrets even now, into the new century. How much has been hidden from the world, how much has been hidden from the very Allies who fought for freedom and respite? What don't we know? What do we know about a Fourth Reich, or a Thousand Year Reich? Scary, isn't it? Did Adolph Hitler really survive? This book by Bear Grylls really grasps you and draws you in to "what if?" Though a book of fiction it contains a lot of fact. I was mesmerized by a number of methods of escape, the way these people bonded with occasional differences as we all have.
Will Jaeger in particular who has been beaten, imprisoned, and no doubt starved, also had his wife and son taken. Are they still alive? Just when almost the last vestiges of clarity and expectation of death, his confidant and best friend has come to rescue him. He is needed for a joint mission. The war is not over after all.
Once the story gets into planning the mission, the book gets even more interesting. This mixed group is going to be learning a lot in a short time. This book is very well written. It is exciting and terrifying at the same time. You will not be able to put it down. I look forward to reading the next book! Amazing story! Bear Grylls really knows how to grab an audience!
