"Behind the Wire" is a story, which begins in the days immediately before WWII, takes us through the defeat of France and the hell of Dunkirk, to the Western Desert and the eventual fall of Tobruk. There are great battles in France and North Africa, but here we also find a different type of courage. Not that which comes to men in the heat of battle, but that which refuses to submit to the privations of cold, hunger and perhaps worst of all, being powerless in the hands of your enemies. "Behind the Wire", is a story of fortitude in the face of isolation and misery, not for weeks, or even months, but for year after grinding year. "Behind the Wire" culminates in a fascinating journey, in parts more of a 'romp', through post-war Italy, immediately after Germany's defeat and the author's release from 'behind the wire'.
