    One thought on “Escape, Evasion and Revenge: The True Story of a German-Jewish RAF Pilot Who Bombed Berlin and Became a POW”

    1. TALK about dramatic irony! “Escape, Evasion and Revenge” by Marc Stevens is the amazing true story of his father, a German Jew who, having escaped Germany before World War II (thereby escaping almost certain death in the Nazi Holocaust) went BACK to bomb Germany (including his home town in Germany!) as a pilot of British Royal Air Force Bomber Command. This, folks, is one surreally heroic read.Pilot Officer (later decorated Squadron Leader) Peter Stevens was born Georg Hein, though the RAF d [...]

    2. This book is excellent. I like personal wartime memoirs, and once again this book proved that truth is far, far stranger than fiction. It wasn't until after Marc Stevens' father died that he uncovered the truth. His father's real name was Georg Hein, and he was Jewish. He changed his name, joined the RAF and became a pilot, then flew bombing missions over Germany (including his home city of Hanover). After being shot down and captured, he spent four years in a prison camp, working tirelessly to [...]

    4. Recently, I read the captivating book review on "Escape, Evasion, and Revenge" on author Elinor Florence's blog. I recommend that you read it, too; it is definitely worth it! (elinorflorence/blog/jewish)

    5. Marc Stevens did a superb job researching his father's life and then telling the story. His father had a difficult life as a preteen boy and until he enrolled in the RAF. From that point on he grew as a person, becoming a genuine hero who fought against and was a captive of the Nazi regime. If one saw the movie "The Great Escape", much of that story was lived by Peter Stevens. Like many WWII veterans, Peter Stevens' kept his war story to himself so the author had to do extensive research. Great [...]

    6. AmazingWhat a fantastic story! The author has done an amazing amount of research for this fascinating account of his late father's life.

    7. A page turner based on a true story What a WWII adventure Peter Stevens lived and even more interesting that most of the details were discovered after his death by his son.

    8. Not the best WWII escape story but ok.The subject was intriguing and the chapter based on the background were very good. At times it was a but padded out

    9. While this book is enjoyable enough, I think the average rating of 4.73 at the time of writing is a bit over-generous!The first quarter of the 200 pages deals with routine information about flying, and his final raid on Germany. So far, unremarkable and typical of other books on the war in the air. Next we flash back to his childhood, and the increasingly difficult times for Jews, with Stevens escaping to Britain. Again, quite interesting but not very remarkable. Eventually he steals another's i [...]
