Printing Details

First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13.5cm, 308pp.

A thrilling WW2 novel of a camp of Allied POWs escaping Italy at the end of the war. Filmed in 1965 with Frank Sinatra and Trevor Howard, however the book ends on a bleaker note than the film... The author himself was a POW in Italy.


A very good copy. There is some light foxing to the first and last pages but the inner binding is secure. The dustwrapper is in good condition but suffers a 5cm scuff from the bottom up to the rear board.
