Very Good condition. Creased, most notably front bottom corner. "An incredible story of courage, survival and loyalty amongst men trapped on an enemy-occupied island in the middle of a war - told in full for the first time. When the order to surrender was given after the Battle of Crete in 1941, over 6,000 Australian, British and New Zealand soldiers were left behind on the south coast. Some escaped immediately on abandoned naval barges or took to the hills. But the vast majority was marched back over the White Mountains to makeshift POW camps. Many escaped, relying on Cretan mountain villagers to shelter and guide them. The relationships forged between these troops and their Cretan helpers are remembered to this day. Drawing on previously unpublished memoirs, including a detailed diary kept by co-author Ian Frazer's Australian officer father, 'On The Run' is a remarkable and moving picture of heroism and endurance."
