"An utterly compelling account of how one POW kept his identity secret from the Nazis and evaded capture, relying on the bravery and kindness of strangers. A terrific read." Andy McNab "One man's extraordinary odyssey of escape through wartime Italy: riveting and remarkable." Ben Macintyre, author of Agent Zigzag "Tom Carver's excellent book gives us a better understanding why our most well known World War II General was the complex man he was." General the Lord Guthrie, Chief of the Defence Staff, 1997-2001 "An escape story in the finest English tradition. Beautifully written and poignant to the end - deserves to become an instant classic" David Loyn, BBC Foreign Affairs Correspondent "This account of Monty's step-son's exploits in the Second World War is a gem. It reminds one of the gallantry and devotion to duty of a generation that has nearly left us." Patrick Cordingley, Commander of the Desert Rats, Iraq, 1991
