Like many people Norman had lived a life which he thought of as ordinary. He, like most of us, is almost invisible. However for most of the 20th Century Norman had been involved in and witnessed a brave new world, a world in which we live today. Norman’s journey has spanned the most interesting century that this planet may ever have from the idyllic home of his birth in the bustling market town of St Neots, Cambridgeshire in 1919 to the cold waters of the North Atlantic during World War 2. From the Normandy landings to the burning African sun, through war and peace, Norman’s true story provides us with a unique portrait of one man’s remarkable life.

Mar 2, 2012Norman, A journey Through time is an easy read and flows through decades of our history in a fluent and interesting manner. I thought it was a great read about one of our service veterans with many humorous anicdotes which you would not expect in war. G M Moore Loved the Life Story of Norman, really brought his 'generations' story to life. Alex has done a wonderful job of extracting all the humerous aspects of Norman's life and bringing them together. A Finch I bought this recently as a gift for my Dad and he thoroughly enjoyed reading it. As a family with military history he has a keen interest for the subject, and this book proved an ideal buy. It is an incredible story of a very remarkable life. As you would expect from the title, the book follows Norman's life painting vivid images of 1930's london and some of the key event's in the Second World War. Very enjoyable read. D G Until you read a story such as this it is hard to imagine what truly astonishing things the people of this... More > generation had to go through, it makes our day to day problems look insignificant. This book is a must read for all generations, some to remember and others so not to forget what people like Norman went through on our behalf. R Ripley, UK. Moving and beautiful story of Norman, 2 Jan 2012 By Mrs. S. P. Brown "sandra" This review is from: Norman, A Journey Through Time (Kindle Edition) This is a beautiful book and I couldn't put it down once I had started. Norman's story is doubtless duplicated by hundreds and thousands of brave young men and women who without hesitation stepped forward to help defend our country and without whom we would be living in a very different world today. The photographs and descriptions of Norman's life are first class and we should thank Alex Askaroff for documenting this story for posterity. I feel I have a much greater understanding of the horror and courage of these young men and women in this dreadful war now I have read this. S Brown In Norman, A Journey Through Time, Alex Askeroff relates one man's life and career against the turmoil of World War Two. It is a glorious tale, although not without sadness, and clearly demonstrates how even global conflict need not dissuade a determined spirit. Norman is revealed as a strong, but sensitive character, one who proved more than able to meet the demands his country made on him, and particularly adept at turning stumbling blocks into stepping stones. This is a gentle, but informative book that will find a home amongst those who remember an era that is all but lost, and may well open the eyes of those who came later. Askeroff's timely reflections on the period and events certainly give an excellent perspective to the story. A J Bond This is a most enthralling tale I recommend it to everyone. An adventure through time past that should not be missed. SP< Less
