"Kiwi fugitives in burning sands of Libya and snow-clad Apennines of Italy". "Out of the waste and muck of war come heart-stirring heroism and humanity. When John Broad and his two cobbers escaped from their P.O.W. camp at Aqua Fredda they launched unknowingly on one of the most exciting odysseys of World War II. You will read what it is like to crouch in a freezing cave while an avalanche seals the entrance, so that it seems you must be buried alive. You will read what is is like to accept the protection of a village knowing that if Fascist spies discover you, the finest men of the village will be shot." - from dust-jacket blurb.
