Reviews

This is a very shocking book. It recaptures the adventure and the horror as it brilliantly conjures up the voices of the past. -- Jason Goodwin * Country Life *
Charming but astute, Stourton captures not only the extraordinary courage of the escapers and the passeurs, or guides, who helped them, but the sense of danger and excitement as they evaded their pursuers. -- Adrian Brewer * The Tablet *
A moving retelling of some of the war's most heroic episodes -- Nigel Jones * Sunday Telegraph *
Stourton's richly rewarding research into the wartime journeys across the Pyrenees reminds us of so many dramatic stories of courage, tragedy, endurance and survival. -- Iain Finlayson * Saga Magazine *
Stourton writes evocatively and with sensitivity... an engaging collection of tales. -- Viv Watts * Daily Express *
