Newby's War, 4 Nov. 2011
For fans of Eric Newby, one of the last of the independent travellers, this is a fascinating tale. Set in Italy during the Second World War, it traces his capture and subsequent escape and life on the run. Very sympathetic to the Italians who befriended him, hid him and supported him, it is also very funny. Not a typical war story!
