Quando Gunner George Norman Davison - sopra - è tornato nella sua città natale di Sheffield alla dose della seconda guerra mondiale, ha portato con sé un diario in cui aveva scritto un resoconto vivido delle sue esperienze.
Tra queste, la ex impiegati assicurativi addestramento militare e la pubblicazione in Nord Africa; separazione dalla moglie appena sposata Irene; la sua cattura e la prigionia nei campi nel deserto della Libia; interminabili giorni solitari trascorso sognando di cibo e della casa; la crudeltà dei suoi carcerieri tedeschi; e - infine - la fuga, con l'aiuto della Resistenza italiana, attraverso il confine sul lago di Como in Svizzera.

Questo libro è dedicato alle tante persone che hanno aiutato mio padre e molti altri nel loro tempo troscorso nel nord d’Africa e in Europa dal 1939 al 1945.
In particolare, è dedicato agli uomini e alle donne che hanno rischiato la loro vita e quella delle loro famiglie solo per la loro gentilizza ed umanità, senza chiedere nulla in cambio:Giovanni Belazzi: ‘padrone’, farmer, Sforzesca,
Vigevano, Milan, Italia;
‘Gigi’ Pistoya, Vigevano, Italia;
Lidia Stoppino, membro di resistenza italiana, Via
Carioli, Vigevano, Milan, Italia;
Teresina Andreanna: ‘Rosina’.

I cannot see any possibility other than writing this story in the
first person. I could have tried to make it fiction but then it
would have been scarcely beievable; it is an autobiography.
