I found this story "A Life in Two Worlds" by Thomas Hughes to be very interesting and compelling to say the least. As the publicity material states:
- Although many people maintain diaries as children, few of those entries contain stories of historical significance. Thomas Hughes is one of the few to share a narrative that sheds new light on the dynamics people experienced during that time.In his new memoir, "A Life in Two Worlds," Hughes tells the story of his life growing up during World War II, including his abduction by German soldiers who were trying to obtain information from his father, a commander in the military, prior to the sinking of the German cruiser Admiral Graf Spee.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the author's writings of having been born into a family, that due to his father's occupation and time and place, had to endure many heart wrenching incidents in order to just survive.
And I was also impressed that as a very, intelligent young man, the author had the wherewithal to keep detailed diaries of what "war" really brings. As humans, we often never give much thought about how a "father's" profession might bring harm to one's innocent family members.
I also liked the way the author completed his story by sharing the intimate details of his life as he grew into "manhood" and into his later years.
My only hope is that the author has achieved that which all humans seek to find, Great Love and Lifelong Happiness.
Would I recommend this story to others? YES!
