In the author’s note at the beginning of Tomorrow We Escape, Tom Trumble describes how he came to write this book – he first saw Ian Busst (pronounced Bewst) on the ABC’s televised broadcast of the 2013 Anzac Day Parade in Melbourne. He was immediately hooked by Ian’s story and his insider’s view of combat, imprisonment, escape, adventure and ultimate survival. Through 60 hours of interview, he has pieced together Busst’s extraordinary story.
Equally extraordinary is the fact that Ian Busst spoke at the book launch in July last year. This video can be viewed via this YouTube link:
