Author(s): Bolwell, Jan
Surviving cancer inspired Jan Bolwell to explore her father's own amazing survival in World War II, first in the North Asfrican Desert, then escaping in Italy and hiding for two years in a cave. The book movingly captures his reconnection with the Italian family who saved his life. Along the way there is time to reflect on fathers, daughters and defining aspects of identity. This is a story for all the 'baby boomers' whose childhoods were so powerfully shaped by men who fought in foreign lands.
