LOYAL TO THE HILL is the prequel to PROUDER THAN EVER, the Prisoner of War diary of Major A.T. CASDAGLI (The Grove 19201). Loyal To The Hill presents the only other diary Cas kept in his life: his schoolboy diary of 1920, in which he wrote every single day during his first year at Harrow School.
    Meticulously accurate, endearing and passionate in its love for the School, this unique document also gives us a fascinating picture of the wealthy Greek community of Salford, Greater Manchester, where Cas lived with his family. We also see, through the observant eyes of this 13 year old boy, the extraordinary times in which he lived, for the Great War still casts its long shadow and the Twenties are about to roar.
    With a Foreword by Peter Hunter and a Preface by George Vassiadis, Loyal To The Hill has a commentary written by Cas’ daughter, Alexis Penny Casdagli, who compiled and edited Prouder Than Ever. Loyal To The Hill is illustrated with over 100 full colour photographs, many of them Cas’ own never which have never been published before and as well as with the photograhs of the pages of Cas’ actual 1920 diary.
