This quiet little book has some amazing depth to it. Busche is a man of deep faith and humility. He shares some of his amazing experiences that led to his conversion to the LDS church and his subsequent service in the church. Any Latter-day Saint would find this a compelling read.

It is his early life, however, that makes this a book I would recommend to just about anyone. The first two chapters are a sort of stand-alone that tell of his boyhood in Hitler Germany. Busche was born just 3 years before Hitler came to power. He describes just what it was like growing up at such a time. He remembers being enrolled for Hitler Youth when he was very young, and the excitement he felt at his tenth birthday when he finally got to wear the uniform and go to meetings.

At age 14, he and some other neighborhood boys were rounded up, issued guns and uniforms, and sent off to the Front. By the time they had arrived where they thought they should be, the Front had dissolved and the American tanks were rolling in. He soon became a prisoner of war. As I read this, I looked over at my 12 year old son. It was almost impossible to imagine, but frightening all the same.

If you have any interest in reading more about World War II, I really recommend looking for a copy of this book. It might be hard to find outside of Utah, but I can't recommend it enough.
