Sir Nicholas Young was, until 2014, CEO of the British Red Cross. Escaping with his Life tells the story of his father’s WW2 experiences at Dunkirk, in the Commandos, and in North Africa, and then his escape from an Italian POW camp. His book is a labour of love, an adventure story and a sign of gratitude to the Italian people who risked their lives to help during the escape.
