Summary
After escaping a P.O.W camp with six others, Australian Lance Corporal Ralph Churches went back for his mates, all ninety of them. He got them airlifted to safety from behind German lines. He had help; the Slovene partisans, well organised and committed to ejecting the Germans. These partisans led the P.O.Ws to safety through the hills of Slovenia. A first-hand account of one of the great escapes of WW11, a tale of cunning, patience, incredible luck, courage and generosity
