"'So they went back to civilian life and joined hundreds of others in college classes, sank their identity and relegated memories of prison camps and prison trains, Maquis expeditions and North Nova battles, Captain Le Coz and the volatile Mimi, to the realm of things forgotten.' Thus ends the thrilling account of the almost incredible adventures of two Canadians -- Jack Fairweather and Jack Veness -- who enlisted about the same time, met in England, and were both sent as lieutenants to the North Nova Scotia Highlanders. From then on they werealmost 'twins', though serving in different companies. Both were in the ac tion on D Day, and after some thrilling fighting they were taken prizoner. The story of their experiences as prionsers, their escape to the French Underground, and their fast-moving, breath-taking 'expeditions' with the cruelCaptain Le Coz, makes fascinating reading." - from the dustjacket (not pre sent).
