If Wales is a subject dear to your heart, read my book Farewell to Hamburg readily available from Amazon and Authorhouse UK. Look for ISBN number: 9781477242018 or search by the book name "Farewell to Hamburg".

The Welsh connection is here

"A refreshing and new outlook on worn torn Germany as experienced and told by a young German boy from Hamburg. The reader is able to re-live the experiences of the highs and lows of life during the Hamburg Fire storm destruction in 1943. The family receive the devastating news that his father is missing in action on the Eastern Front presumed dead, as the reports indicate his Panzer unit being totally destroyed. Then thankfully the war ended. Mother was able to befriend a British soldier; this Welshman who worked in the British Army kitchens was able to “supply” the necessary food to keep this family from going hungry, often via difficult and extraordinary means to ensure his own position was not damaged. All this is told in a heart wrenching tale and takes us on the journey from the destruction of Hamburg to peace time on the Welsh coast. As with all good stories there is a twist to the tale, which again sees more emotional upheaval, but with the ever guiding hand of his older brother, is able to face up to all the trials that war had thrown and the utter devastation felt of a young boy in a strange land, when the family moved to Wales the feeling of isolation, not able to speak the language the reader is taken through the adventures in this strange country and shows the resilience of the young"

Ordering now
Regards
Steve

Thank you Steve, perhaps Rucjock21 will put his hand in to his pocket? Not much chance of that though him being from north of Hadrians wall. No doubt he will look for a second hand copy?

Just my German sense of humour my friends. Oh, and thanks again for liberation us from that madman Adolf. Pity you could not do so before Bomber Harris went over the top.

Let there be no more wars!

Yes Rudolf, RucJock21 will be making a purchase of the said book.Will it be signed by you? I am a keen purchaser of books about the war and the after effects of it in Germany.As you say let there be no more wars.Watching the History Channel on Virgin Media lately it said that a total of 50 million people lost their lives from all countries in WW2.I look into the history of Germany prior to WW2 and how the German people were terrorised by the Nazi Party to support Hitler.Germany today looks a lovely place to visit it is so modern looking in comparison to the UK.We seen to be left behind since the war.Sadly Europe is being swamped with immigrants from everywhere and it is causing us billions taking care of them.A united Europe is certainly not working for the UK as we seem to be putting a helluva lot of money into it and it is being squandered by those a**eholes in charge and we are getting very little out.

Just to let you know Dieter I have made a purchase of your book from Amazon.If you are ever up here in Scotland make a point of contacting me in order that you can sign your book for me.Tom

Thank you Tom. Scotland is dear to me as I worked in Rutherglen for a couple of years back in the 70's and my Daughter was born in Paisley Hospital back in 1971. I have also visited the Black Watch Museum as I too am interested in all aspects of British forces, more so than German as my book will explain a little I believe.

Personally I believe that a united Europe is good, but to have thousands of people in Brussels overseeing nothing properly, giving tax payers money away and paying themselves huge salaries and expenses and creating near on havoc with their stupid rules must stop.

Still, it will not matter to me any more in not so many years now, so I am attempting to guide my children to vote for the people who have the public at heart. Not much chance of finding that person I know.

Take care now and yes if I am in Scotland as I was last March 2012 I will certainly make contact and sign your book.

Signing off now by saying it is hot here today and the sun is shining and a cloudless sky.
