BRITISH PRISONERS OF WAR IN ITALY: PATHS TO FREEDOM

In September 1943 fifty thousand British and Allied prisoners of war fled from their camps after the Italian Armistice and Surrender. The Allies had landed in the south. The Germans occupied the rest of the country and brought back Benito Mussolini as head of a puppet Fascist republic. This gripping account shows how the escapers were helped by a secret army of Italian civilians and members of the Resistance. They included Malcolm's mother and grandparents who aided 20 escapers from the prison camp at Fontanellato. Over seventeen thousand Allied escapers used the mountain trails to reach neutral Switzerland or to cross enemy lines to the Allied armies in Italy. The country tracks became paths to freedom.

PRISONERS AND PARTISANS: ESCAPE AND EVASION IN WORLD WAR II ITALY

This book is the essential guide to escape and evasion in wartime Italy. During World War II over 20,000 British and Allied servicemen escaped to neutral Switzerland or crossed the lines within Italy. Many of the former prisoners of war and downed airmen were rescued by agents of the Allied secret services. But the majority of the fugitives were saved by Italian civilians and members of the Resistance. 'What counted most was the kindness of strangers.'
