Product Description


'Unusual and quite interesting. I can recommend it.'
- Cal. Younger
-- The Kriegi, newsletter of the Royal Air Forces Ex-POW Association, June 2001.

From the Publisher

This book tells how most of the Allied POWs in Italy during
World War II were captured in the great tank battles across North Africa.

In September 1943 an Armistice was signed between the Allies and Italy.

In the chaos almost 50,000 Allied prisoners of war escaped from their camps
and were helped by a secret army of Italian civilians. They included the
author's mother and grandparents who assisted 20 British and South African
escaped POWs evade capture in the mountains of northern Italy.

Many of the servicemen followed the mountain trails to neutral Switzerland
or through enemy lines to friendly forces - the paths to freedom.
