RHLSTP Book Club 54 - Colditz. Richard talks to acclaimed historian Ben Macintyre about his fabulous book about the true story of Colditz - beyond the Boy’s Own stuff we grew up and incorporating boredom, propaganda spreading wasps and homosexuality. It’s Richard’s favourite book of 2022 (now out in paperback) telling the story of some of the more famous inhabitants of the castle like Pat Reid and Douglas Bader (who was both a hero and a monster), as well as some of the lesser known and unknown figures like Alex Ross and Birendranath Mazumdar. The pair also chat about the incredible last days of Colditz and the hell of the slave labour camp in the town. Plus a brief chat about some of Ben’s other fantastic books and how they read like novels, whilst still being entirely factual.
