In the shadow of Mount Kenya, life drags interminably for the Italian inmates of Allied POW Camp 354, captured in Africa during World War II. Desperate to be free, prisoner Felice Benuzzi devises a clever escape plan. Few could have succeeded, and fewer still would break back into the camp on their return, yet that is precisely what Benuzzi and two comrades achieved. First published in 1947, this powerful testament is illustrated here with black and white photos as well as color reproductions of Benuzzi's own watercolors.
