Just checked on Amazon for the book. They want over £17 for the paperback version plus postage!!! A bit steep I think!! There was also another book by an ex prisoner ' After Stalingrad' by Adelbert Toll. The revues for 'Life can be cruel' were not particularly good so I shall buy the 'After Stalingrad' book I think.
