Inhaltsangabe: Nothing prepares a man for war and Private Charles Waite, of the Queen?s Royal Regiment, was ill-prepared when his convoy took a wrong turning near Abbeville and met 400 German soldiers and half a dozen tanks. "The day I was captured, I had a rifle but no ammunition." He lost his freedom that day in May 1940 and didn?t regain it until April 1945 when he was rescued by Americans near Berlin, having walked 1,600 kms from East Prussia. Silent for 70 years, Charles writes about his five lost years: the terrible things he saw and suffered; his forced work in a stone quarry and on farms; his period in solitary confinement for sabotage; and his long journey home in one of the worst winters on record, across the frozen river Elbe, to Berlin and liberation. His story is also about friendship, of physical and mental resilience, and of compassion for everyone who suffered. Part of that story includes the terrible Long March, or Black March, when 80,000 British POWs were forced to trek through a vicious winter westwards across Poland, Czechoslovakia and Germany as the Soviets approached. Thousands died. There are simply no memoirs of that terrible trek?except this one.

Über den Autor: Charles Waite is now over 90 years old and lives in Kidderminster. He has finally decided to tell his harrowing story after 70 years, with the help of author, journalist, and friend Dee La Vardera. She is the author of seven books and countless articles for publications as diverse as the Guardian, Farmer's Weekly and the Lady. She has painstakingly recorded (and authenticated) Charles's experiences. So moved was ex-hostage Terry Waite on meeting Charles that he immediately offered to write a foreword to this book.

Charles Waite Spellmount Publishing, Stroud. 2012 First Edition ISBN 9780752465197 224pp Illustrated Hardback. This copy is in mint unread condition in a mint unclipped dust wrapperNothing prepares a man for war and Private Charles Waite, of the 2/7th Queen's Royal Regiment, was certainly ill-prepared when his convoy carrying supplies of petrol and ammunition on its way to Dunkirk took a wrong turning near Abbeville. They met half a dozen German tanks on the road and saw hundreds of German soldiers marching across fields towards them. 'The day I was captured, I had a rifle but no ammunition.' Charles lost his freedom that day in May 1940 and didn't regain it until May 1945 when he was finally picked up by the Americans, having walked 1600km from his prison camp attached to Stalag 20B in East Prussia. 'When I got back I couldn't tell anybody about what had happened during my years as a POW. I was ashamed. I hadn't won any medals; I had no stories of brave deeds. How could I be proud of breaking rocks for 12 hours day or pulling cabbages out of frozen ground at gunpoint? Would they have wanted to hear about the wounded soldiers dying in my arms, of the acts of cruelty I witnessed, and the terrible hunger and fatigue suffered on the Long March? Everybody wanted to forget the war and get on with rebuilding their lives.' Silent for 70 years, for the first time he has put his story on paper. He describes his first march from Abbeville to Trier and journey by cattle truck across Germany to the east; working in a stone quarry and years of farm labour; his period in solitary confinement for sabotage; and the Long March home in the one of the worst winters on record. His story is also about friendship, of physical and mental resilience, and of compassion for everyone who suffered. 'My book is for all who lie in foreign fields. Those in shallow graves, the men we couldn't take with us. It's for those left behind'. Ref BB4 Size: 224pp. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 009512
