1 Poolton, Jack A. With Jayne Poolton-Turvey. DESTINED TO SURVIVE: A DIEPPE VETERAN'S STORY.
Dundurn Press, Toronto, 1998. 
144 pp, 9" H, soft cover. ISBN 155002311X B&w illustrations. "Private Jack Poolton was among the Canadians landing at the disastrous raid on Dieppe. Fortunate to have survived, Jack was taken to a prisoner of war camp in Germany. In (this book he) relates the story of his training, capture, and experiences in the POW camp. We follow Jack's three escape attempts, and his subsequent punishment. And we share his elation when Jack and his fellow prisoners are liberated by American soldiers. Poolton and the other POWs never lost their desire to escape. Throughout the ordeal, Jack dreamed of one day celebrating the end of the war and an allied victory. He eventually celebrated V-E Day in England. (This) is an extraordinary co n t r i b u t ion to Canadian military history. Poolton's honest prose reveals the emotions of a man devoted to King and country, and determined to survive at all costs. The gripping account brings the reader to a new understanding about soldiers, p ri so ne rs , an d war." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor soiling on edge of last page, minor rubbing. Very Good
