In April 1943, officer Ian Reid was wounded and captured in Tunisia and sent off to an Italian prisoner-of-war camp. Five months later, when the Germans took over the camp, he escaped. So began a life-or-death game of hide and seek in the heart of the beautiful Italian countryside, living in barns, sleeping in ditches, and desperate scavenging for food. He was recapturedthough heroically he was to escape from the Germans a total of five times. Nearly60 years later, Howard Reid quite literally followed in his father's footsteps and made the same journey across Italy. Along the way, Howard discusses father-son relationships, and the deep but invisible scars left by two world wars oneveryone's personal history.
