Free Lodgings
A True Story of a kiwi soldiers amazing bid for freedom
by Peter Winter
1993
From the crushing defeat of Crete to the last days of Nazi Germany, Free Lodgings is an adventure story full of the indomitable spirit of the Kiwi soldier - and not a little of his ingenuity! Peter Winter was among 2000 New Zealanders left stranded on Crete with no option but to become prisoners of war.
Incarcerated for nearly four years in German and Italian POW camps, Winter never lost his burning desire to regain his freedom and he made a number of escape attempts, both spontaneous and planned. At times he came very close to success and spent many months at large, supported by the goodwill and hospitality of the Greek peasants. Other attempts were doomed from the start and met with severe retaliation from his captors.
Then, as the end of the war seemed in sight,came the bitter blow of being marched across Poland and Germany as the Russians advanced. Never one to say die, Peter winter brings his story to its own surprising conclusion
