A Kiwi Family's Story
This is the story of three brothers from Putaruru who fought in the Second World War. The exploits of Jim Rolfe and his brothers Reg and Jack cover between them most of the campaigns in which Kiwi soldiers fought: from desert fighting in North Africa, including El Alamein; the war in Italy, including the battle for Cassino; through to Reg's daring escape as a prisoner of war in Crete to Tunisia in an open fishing boat. The brothers and their comrades faced new experiences that were often exciting, frequently horrifying, but always - both in and out of action - life-changing. In a single stroke their lives and hopes for the future had been turned upside down, never to be the same again.
