    I am going to have to go out and buy his book...we are losing these heroes everyday and we should never forget their stories and what they fought for..our freedom

      I have had the book for a couple weeks now but have only read a small part of it.

      It's an incredible story of survival; one can not begin to imagine what it was like. Hell on earth.

      Mr Urquhart is originally from Aberdeen. To think that a man that went through all of that was but a few miles away. Every time I see the Gordon Barracks I'll be reminded of this.

      I am glad that he has put his story to paper as it needed to be told. It must not have been an easy thing to do.
