Journal Entry 5 by Kebmel from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Sunday, June 21, 2009
I enjoyed the movie in 1978? and I'm enjoying the book more so.
In most cases, I find the book more enjoyable than the movie,
except for 'The Eagle Has Landed', the movie surpasses the book.

There's a dearth of German perspective WWII novels/nonfiction
so Cross Of Iron/Das Geduldige Fleisch is one of the few.
The Sven Hassel pulp fiction books are ok for a chuckle.

This bookcrossing scheme is a great idea, I'll have a dung`out
and contribute from my stash!
