Title:Cassino to Trieste - A Soldier's Story
Published by Steele Roberts Aotearoa, Wellington, 2006, 173 pages. Scotch Paterson was born in Scotland in 1911 and emigrated to New Zealand at age ten. In World War II, despite his pacifist ideals, he went to Italy to fight in the Allied cause. This is the candid story of his service, first as a corporal, then as a commissioned officer. Cassino to Trieste documents the demands placed on the men who fought for our freedom, and the exacting expectations some had for their own behaviour. Scotch's engaging and moving story reveals many sides of people's character under fire, - from the craven, through the humorous - to the inspirational.
