This is a remarkable true story of a very brave young soldier who was only 19 years old when he survived the hell on the beaches of Dunkirk during the evacuation of the BEF in 1940 and miraculously escaped on the last rescue boat. Because of the bravery that he showed then, his Medical Commanding officer recommended him for a Commission. He enlisted as an officer in the 3/9th Gurkha Rifles and finally found himself in the Burma Jungle in Wingate's Special Force as a Chindit, fighting a ruthless Japanese enemy, and then for a second time, suffered another hell there. This book tells the amazing story of some of those experiences and is well worth reading.
Listen to him talking about his Dunkirk experience on google "Dunkirk.Bill Towill" and to read more about his experiences in India see "In Those Days" by Justine Dowley-Wise.
