Escaping with his Life

Nicholas Young tells the inspirational war-time story of his father, Leslie. From Dunkirk to D-Day, he details his capture and escape in Italy, hiding in the Apennines where he was aided by two young Jewish partisans, who tragically died within sight of the Allied lines. Wounded, Major Young continued to fight his way through Germany.
