He has had dramatic experiences and describes something of his inner responses. For me the descriptions of landscape go on a bit but he has remarkable memory for detail.

Good Newby book on wartime Italy as an (ex) prisoner of war trying to evade capture and really nice descriptions of the mountains and local live in an occupied country.

Apart from being extremely well written I was struck on first reading it by the sheer love of humanity by the Italian population in WW2 to those who needed help from both the Allied and Axis sides. I wonder if we would have shown that level of civilisation?

A wonderful read while I walked in the area.

Wonderful evocation of the time and the support and warmth of the local people.
