Written in first person by the veteran, who enlisted for World War II service with the second 7th Battalion 2 AIF.
Brough fought and was wounded at Tobruk and at El Alamein. In a human in a humane gesture, he piggybacked a badly wounded enemy soldier back to German lines under heavy fire. However in the process he was taken prisoner.

In 1944 while in an Austrian POW camp he escaped and had an incredible journey back to Allied lines. This is the life story of this digger and the exploits that earned him the Military Medal.

This book would be of interest to all those who had a relative serving in the 7th Battalion even more so if they were taken prisoner.
