Title: The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz by Denis Avey with Rob Broomby

Category: Nonfiction, History, World War II

Review: I loved this book and it was hard putting it down. This was an absolute eye-opening book and I think everyone should read it. This book is by a man named Denis Avey who was a British POW. The book is told through his eyes. It is as if he is there speaking to you directly. It starts in the years when he joins the army and goes to Africa to fight. It then goes on to tell how he ends up as a British POW in a German camp. He explains how and why he gets into the Auschwitz camp. He describes what he has to do to escape from the Germans and to get home. However, he doesn’t just stop at the war years. He also goes on to tell you about the pain of after the war. This is when the soldiers had PTSD and nobody knew about it. It is just such a revealing book about a soldier’s life and I really think that everyone should read it. It is well-written and once you turn the first page you will get sucked into the story.
