DESCRIPTION: This is a memoir that has the excitement of the best novels. The 
author tells his story with panache and feeling   –  Most Highly Recommended

The memoir is a staple of military history, providing a glimpse of the events through 
the eyes of someone who was there. Some memoirs can be heavy reading because 
the author makes every effort to leave nothing out, other than the pace and style 
which makes a good story a delight to read. Here is a memoir that leaves nothing out 
but presents the story with the pace, tension, excitement, suspense of the most 
gripping novel. There is a charming photo-plate section including some post -war images. 

This is a rare story and original edition, From Liguria With Love, published in 1997 by 
Minerva, has been updated in this new edition from Pen & Sword. It has been superbly 
written. It is a powerful and exciting story that is an inspiring tribute to all those who 
risked their lives to help the author, including the daughter of a prominent anti-Fascist, 
who was later to become his wife.

Although this is not a unique experience, it is one that has been rarely told. During 
WWII, downed airmen and escaped POWs in France and Italy were helped by escape 
lines and resistance groups, but many of them also spent some time actively fighting 
alongside those resistance groups. It was not always possible to help those on the run 
to make a rapid escape. Sometimes it was simply too dangerous to make their attempt 
immediately. During the period between, the men on the run were a constance danger 
to those helping them and many took up arms to 'earn their keep' until an escape run 
could be arranged. The appreciation and admiration for the resistance fighters, and the 
many civilians involved in keeping the evaders safe, comes out clearly in the absorbing 
story.
