Book cover: Wojtek the Bear

I bought this book on the strength of a Radio 4 interview with the author. I love the dust-jacket design. I love the story told by Aileen Orr, and the long and fascinating epilogue by Neal Ascherson, who puts the story into context. There was so much I didn’t know about Polish history and the huge contribution made by dispossessed and stateless Poles to the war effort.
