Rebecca I enjoyed the clip very much. What a connection Thomas Harding has with this story. How wonderful that was given access to both men's letters. I can't wait!

Mark Nice intro. I think it is great to hear from the author before reading the book so you can put his opening perspecitive in the back of your mind as you digest the story.

Vincent Interesting little video. Interesting that he felt the story was worthy of a book and that he would do it. The speaker seems to have a British accent but his uncle I am assuming was German. (Of course many Europeans work on their English in England and have such accents) - I am curious however how he will present the story. And as I think of it I am curious how easy it might have been for the commandant to slip into another life in Germany assuming he stayed there.
