Ersatz Krieg: A True Story of Men Captured, But Not Conquered Overview

'Ersatz Krieg'. The true story of Alban Snape, aged just 18 he was taken prisoner whilst on a scouting mission soon after the Normandy Landings in June 1944. This 'Churchill gangster' was transported to Stalag VIIIC in Poland and sent to work for the Germans in a sugar factory. The story tells of Alban's attempted escape, the sabotage of the sugar factory and the long march west that followed. For five months they were marched and starved with the harsh central European winter as the backdrop to this epic tale. This book gives a dramatic insight to the tyranny and horror that was Nazi Germany, where a single Red Cross parcel was worth killing for and where men fought a continual struggle to stave off death from a plethora of causes.
