In July 1941, after five weeks behind the barbed wire of a prisoner-of-war compound in fallen Crete, Jim McDevitt spotted a chance for freedom. Without pausing to reflect on the dangers, the bold young Kiwi took his chance… and so began a 22 month game of cat-and-mouse with the islands conquerors.
This is Jim’s story… a story of hardship, survival, friendship, and of courage; set against the backdrop of on of the world’s most ruggedly beautiful islands.

“Of all the books published on escapes from Crete this is by far the most interesting. Jim writes in a warm, friendly style and describes the many situations and characters perfectly — he brings life to the narrative and maintains tension to the end. A book to be savoured by anyone with a link to World War II or an interest in history.” Bill Ellison — author of Kiwi at Large and Kiwi Vagabond
