The job of a wartime runner was among the most exacting and consistently dangerous of all: it required courage, flair, stamina and, above all, an unquestioning sense of duty. In this enthralling account of his experiences, George Psychoundakis, a man of great humour and humanity, describes his wartime work from the beginning of the German invasion to the liberation.
