As an impressionable teenager, Ray Ellis enlisted in the South Notts Hussars at the beginning of World War II and started a journey that would take him through fierce fighting in the Western Desert, the deprivation suffered in an Italian prisoner-of-war camp, and a daring escape to join the partisan forces in the Apennines. Just a year before his 2014 passing, Ellis penned this vivid, witty, and inspiring account of his war experiences, which serves also as a tribute to the Greatest Generation and a bygone Britain.
