village near Salerno, defended by 42 German soldiers, with a single back-up man, using only his sword! He was captured in June 1944, after a failed assault on the island of Brac on the Dalmatian coast, and sent straight to Berlin, as the Germans were convinced he was a relative of Winston Churchill! In April 1945 he managed to walk in darkness out of a work detail in Niedersdorf, Austria, and walked across the Alps at Brenner Pass, and managed to convince a passing American tank convoy that the ragged, hungry, and filthy creature he had become was a British officer.
