About the Book
A visionary and master of his craft, Alan Whicker's television shows from the fifties to the nineties almost single handed invented the language of travel television and earned him the status of one of the most foremost of British media icons. He was persuaded, as part of the 60th anniversary of the invasion of Italy, to tell his remarkable war experiences in two hour-long television pieces. This book uses these programmes as the starting point to tell the story of Alan Whicker's remarkable war. This is remarkable account of the Italian campaign of 1943 and 1944, as he retraces of his steps over sixty years later. Beautifully written, poignant with humour and pathos, this is a masterful book by one of the 20th centuries greatest TV journalists.
