Publisher's Summary

In March 1944, 76 Allied officers tunnelled out of Stalag Luft III. Of the 73 captured, 50 were shot by direct order of Hitler.
This is the story of how a British Bobby from Blackpool, Frank McKenna, was sent to post-war Germany on the express orders from Churchill to bring the Gestapo murderers to justice. In a quest that ranges from the devastated, bombed out cities of Europe to the horrors of the concentrations camps, McKenna is relentless in his pursuit.
A gripping read set in the aftermath of World War II. Simon Read is a former award-winning newspaper reporter and best-selling author. Born in Britain, he is the author of Dark City: Crimes in Wartime London. He now lives in the U.S.

Probably Better in Book Format

What disappointed you about Human Game?

I was really looking forward to listening to this, as the plot sounded very interesting. However, I found it very difficult to get into and it was hard to remember the names. This could just be me, but it was hard to keep track of people when not seeing their names written down. I will probably give the book a go, but for me, the audiobook was a disappointment.

Excellent telling of the round up of the perpetrators

A concise telling of German brutality by both German service personnel and the civilian population who really thought the Allies should not have done what they had done! which has wrongly lasted until the present day. Bomber Command stood for bravery and freedom.
