Publisher's Summary

With a single daring leap from an Italian train carrying prisoners of war, John Miller jumped out of the war of soldiers and into the war as lived by Italian civilians - many of whom risked their lives to help him.

The year was 1943 and Captain Miller had been in captivity for over a year. Italian anti-fascists harboured and fed him, first in a remote mountain village, then in Rome itself. For months he posed as a deaf-mute and member of the Fascist Youth in order to dodge German patrols and the Italian secret police - until the Allied liberation of Rome brought GIs flooding onto the streets.
