eBook (PDF): $8.00

After self-reflecting for a few weeks, I thought a lot about if I was to die tomorrow, would I be happy with everything I had done. Had I ever lived my “dream?” I realized that although... More > my life had been interesting, the answer was “No.” Think about it, what would you do before you die? Where would you go? What would you see? Who do you want to meet? I took the chance and “released” from “real life” to see what was out there. It is a right that we all have. I know many people have traveled to “find themselves” and though that was not my intent, it happened. I did something that no one can ever take away from me – something for myself. For the first time in my life I did not have a plan, was selfish and it felt great. The first thing I packed was a wine key. This is my European story: 42 cities, 14 countries, in 80 days – solo and unplanned.< Less

Andy MacKenzie's dream of flying came true when he graduated as a pilot in the RCAF. He desperately wanted to be a fighter pilot but first had to spend two years as an instructor. Finally overseas... More > he quickly became an ace when he downed three enemy aircraft in 90 seconds winning the Distinguished Flying Cross. He was shot down by American 'friendly' fire over the Normandy beachhead. His final count was 8.5 kills before returning to Canada to command a squadron of Kitty Hawks for the Pacific war. The atomic bomb shut down his chance to fight again and he left the air force. Soon after he rejoined, he had ground jobs before taking command of 441 Squadron flying F-86 Sabres. On exchange duty with the US air force in Korea he was shot down by a wing mate and spent two years of torture in a Chinese prison -- 465 days in solitary confinement for refusing to reveal military secrets.

THE IRON CURTAIN KID By OLIVER FRITZ

Ever wondered what it must have been like growing up behind the Iron Curtain, on the wrong side of the Berlin Wall? Would your days have been haunted by the shadow of the omnipresent secret service,... More > the Stasi, or was reality somewhat more mundane? In this humorous and touching memoir, Oliver Fritz takes us behind the myths, into a world of bottled fruit, corny commie jokes, socialist folk songs, sticky-taped plastic bags and Trabant cars. Where kids are counting the years to retirement, pensioners have no qualms breaking the law, holidays involve smuggling western newspapers from the Soviet Union or money to Czechoslovakia and being mistaken for a westerner is a teen’s dream. Underpinning daily life in the German Democratic Republic is Oliver’s longing to know what things are like on the other side of the Wall…and the mixed feelings that result when, with the help of a tin of mushrooms, he finally begins to find out for himself… Visit www.ironcurtainkid.com for more info.< Less
