Synopsis:

Badly wounded at the battle of Arnhem, and then spirited from his hospital bed by the Dutch Resistance, Brigadier John Hackett spent the winter of 1944 in Nazi-occupied Holland, hidden by a Dutch family, at great risk to their own lives. Hackett was at last well enough to set out on an adventure which would, he hoped, lead him to freedom.
