In 1946 Michael Howard, aged 19, was sent to the British zone of occupied Germany as part of Target ("T") Force, the army unit responsible for locating and removing military and technological hardware, and sometimes people, of potential value to the occupying power. During his 18 month stay he wrote 67 letters home to his mother. These remarkable documents, linked by the , often more risque, reminiscences of the older man, form the text of this book.
