Not As Briefed is story of American heroism that needs to be heard
Not As Briefed is one of the greatest World War Two memoirs ever produced. While every valiant hero of that war is deserving of recognition, few have stories as dramatic as C. Ross Greening. Greening writes his story in a brilliant manner, captivating the reader and making real his experiences. Not as Briefed is chock full of bombs over Yokohama, bail-outs over China, and a purple heart on the slope of Mt. Vesuvius. It is the story of a pilot who could use his mind to get out of trouble when he spent months running from the Nazis in the Italian alps. Once captured, Ross Greening put his talents to use in Stalag Luft One, and demonstated one of the finest measures of character ever to touch the thousands of POWs in Barth, Germany. Greening¿s memoirs are an important reminder of the price of freedom, and illustrate his own love for America that grew as WWII wore on. Not As Briefed is patriotic and moving, and ought to be rated by American readers as one of the finest World War Two documents ever published.Was this review helpful?
