Inhaltsangabe: "Behind the Wire" is a story, which begins in the days immediately before WWII, takes us through the defeat of France and the hell of Dunkirk, to the Western Desert and the eventual fall of Tobruk. There are great battles in France and North Africa, but here we also find a different type of courage. Not that which comes to men in the heat of battle, but that which refuses to submit to the privations of cold, hunger and perhaps worst of all, being powerless in the hands of your enemies. "Behind the Wire", is a story of fortitude in the face of isolation and misery, not for weeks, or even months, but for year after grinding year. "Behind the Wire" culminates in a fascinating journey, in parts more of a 'romp', through post-war Italy, immediately after Germany's defeat and the author's release from 'behind the wire'.
Über den Autor: Albert Winter joined the Territorial Army in the dark days leading to WWII and saw service in Britain, France and North Africa, before being taken prisoner after the fall of Tobruk in 1942. From then on he was a Prisoner-of-War until May 8th 1945. From his experiences at Dunkirk and later in North Africa, Albert has gained an inner strength, which has served him well through the turbulent years since the end of WWII. During these years he has travelled the world promoting British industry and now in his eighties, still maintains a lively interest in the modern world.
