Tomorrow We Escape

Tomorrow We Escape

By Tom Trumble

“ An easy, lilting narrative is paired with the darker themes of the Nazi Occupation ”

Tomorrow We Escape by Tom Trumble was a fascinating read. It portrays the true story of one Melbournian WW II digger's extraordinary adventures on the battlefields of Tobruk that lead to his capture and incarceration within an Italian POW camp. Due to his resilience, resourcefulness and courage, Ian was able to escape from the camp and spend three years surviving in enemy based forests and villages before reaching the allied lines and his fateful journey home in 1945. This novel is an easy read that will have you reflecting on how ordinary individuals can face severe adversity in an effort to survive the trials of war.
