Author(s): Ernest Brough & Greg Baum
A young WWII digger's tale of his war, from signing up as a naive country boy to the horrors of battle, and a daring escape across occupied territory. Captured and sent by boat to Italy Brough and his fellow prisoners sang Australian ditties loudly to alert Allied submarines to hold fire. He ended up at Stalag 18A prison camp in Austria. On Good Friday 1944, Brough and two others, a West Australian and a New Zealander, escaped and embarked on an daring flight for freedom through Slovenia and Croatia to Bosnia.
