Book description
After his dramatic escape from a German POW camp, Canadian John J. Macdonald is looking forward to spending the rest of the war in happy retirement in Switzerland. The mad Major Rupert Knickerson has other plans. And the reluctant Macdonald, together with Fontaine - a Frenchman with an alarming habit of swinging naked through the trees - and Corporal Ahmed.who wants a new wife - becomes involved in a crazy scheme to steal an invaluable chalice from a Sicilian Monastery before the Germans get to it. Insatiable Red Cross nurses, a beautiful Italian partisan, a fake, four star, pistol-packing General and a Mafia mobster add to the chaos and confusion.
