Read it sometime, the cover is off, don't think my copy is this same ed. Brought home to re-read.

An amazing real-life story of a man's escape from Nazi-occupied Greece. Thomas is not, I think, such a naturally entertaining writer as Pat Reid (The Colditz Story) and some chapters flagged a bit. All the same, this is a truly extraordinary story. If it weren't true, it would be hard to suspend disbelief!

Great read. Hard to put down once you start.
