Classic escaped POW gets the girl story
on 22 August 2017
Well I finally got down to reading a book, acknowledged as a POW escape classic, and I was not disappointed. Set in Italy, it had all the cliche's, poor Italian farmers, dastardly Germans, near captures, and more than the average love interest. The plot is similar to many I have read but the writer is an accomplished author who really made the story live, unlike many other books on the same subject.
Ultimately he did not make it to the Allied lines, but he did get the girl in the end !
