Originally published in Dutch in 2006, this is the first English translation. It tells the story of medical student Daniël de Moulin who refused to sign a Declaration of Loyalty in occupied Holland in 1943. Anyone refusing to do so faced the penalty of forced labour in Germany so de Moulin decided to make a run for it across occupied Europe to try to make it to England to fight the Nazis. It’s an entertaining account, has plenty of photos, and profits from rounding off the story by telling what happened after the war.
