Naked In A Coat of Armor is autobiographical fiction taken from experience but not altogether true. It begins in 1888, before the time of the author's birth, and ends near the end of the millennium, giving us a full century's glimpses. While it chronicles uncomfortable and sometimes horrible conditions, its tone is light hearted and entertaining, with turns of phrase that please the literary ear. Mr. Aichroth's book reveals the hard facts of ordinary people's lives in both Germany and England before the war, camaraderie and struggles among flyboys during active duty, young love, and adulthood punctuated by tragedy and imaginative leaps. The reader does not so much hear about these events as lives them, making this book one that readers of fiction and nonfiction alike will enjoy.They were lucky because returning veterans found there was a severe shortage of housing.
