Author of Elizabeth Macarthur:
a life at the edge of the world.
'Its strength lies not in emotion, but in presenting a window into the soul and decision making
of the POWs in their relationships with themselves, authorities and the Italian populace... I rate
this as the best account of the overall POW experience that I have read.'
