New book by A.T. CASDAGLI
LOYAL TO THE HILL the prequel to PROUDER THAN EVER
LOYAL TO THE HILL
LOYAL TO THE HILL tells the story of A.T. Casdagli, one of Harrow School’s ‘Giants of Old’, through the prism of his love for the School. Lavishly illustrated, it presents his schoolboy dairy of 1920, in which, aged 13 and a quarter, he wrote every day of that year, his first at Harrow. It stands as the prequel to Casdagli’s much acclaimed PROUDER THAN EVER, the diary he wrote during his four years as a Prisoner of War in Nazi Germany. LOYAL TO THE HILL also reveals how Casdagli’s school-days influenced his achievements as a soldier, Prisoner of War, sportsman, diplomat and embroiderer.About Purchase
PROUDER THAN EVER
The author, Major A. T. Casdagli, was captured in Crete on 1 June 1941 and taken to Germany where he was held in various prisoner of war camps. There, in spite of risk of confiscation and reprisal, he kept a secret diary. It is presented here for the first time, illustrated with his photographs, embroideries, prison memorabilia and documents, all of which he carefully preserved, as if he knew this astonishing, honest and inspiring historical document would inevitably be published.About Purchase
