Badly wounded at the battle of Arnhem, and then spirited from his hospital bed by the Dutch Resistance, Brigadier John Hackett spent the winter of 1944 in Nazi-occupied Holland, hidden by a Dutch family, at great risk to their own lives, in a house a stone's throw from a German military police billet. After four months in hiding, Hackett wa s at last well enough to strap a battered suitcase to an ancient bicycle and set out on a high adventure which would, he hoped, lead him to freedom.

Industry Reviews

A fine account, by the commander of one of the parachute brigades at Arnhem during Worls War II, of how he was wounded and captured, of how he escaped, and of how he lived for months with a Dutch family beside a German military police post until he was smuggled out across the Rhine by night. An unusually gripping story of Anglo-Dutch friendship and endurance in peril. (Kirkus UK)
