1 - 2 weeks availability
Journalist and broadcaster Robert Kee was an RAF bomber pilot in the Second World War. When his plane was shot down over Nazi-occupied Holland, he was captured and spent three years and three months in a German POW camp. From the beginning he was intent on escape. After several false starts, he finally made it. First published in 1947 as a novel, but now revealed to be an autobiography, A Crowd Is Not Company recounts Kee's experiences as a prisoner of war and describes in compelling detail his desperate journey across Poland - a journey that meant running the gauntlet of Nazism.
Robert Kee was born in 1919 and read history at Magdalen College, Oxford. He was a bomber pilot in the RAF, and after leaving in 1946, he became a journalist. He worked for Picture Post, the Observer and the Sunday Times, and was a literary editor of the Spectator. He was considered one of the great broadcasters of his generation, appearing for many years on both the BBC and ITV as reporter, interviewer and presenter. He took part in current affairs programmes and in documentaries for the BBC and ITV. More recently he wrote on Britain during the Second World War in 1939: The World We Left Behind and 1945: The World We Fought For; also Trial and Error about the Guildford pub bombings. He was awarded the BAFTA Richard Dimbleby Award in 1976. He died in 2013.
