Dangerous Days: A Digger's Great Escape

Ernest Brough

In Dangerous Days, Ern Brough relives the incredible journey that earned him the Military Medal. After joining up with his mates from country Victoria, Brough fought and was wounded at Tobruk and El Alamein. But neither he nor his humanity died. During the brutal Allied offensive against Rommel in October 1942 he piggybacked a badly wounded enemy soldier back to German lines under heavy fire. Three hours later the tanks arrived and Brough was taken prisoner. On Good Friday 1944, Brough and two others escaped from an Austrian POW camp and embarked on a desperate flight through Slovenia and Croatia to Bosnia. This is Brough's amazing story of survival and courage. Soft cover, photographs, 326 pages.
