by Alan Pollock; illustrated by Bryony Thomson. 18th May 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of one of the most destructive and decisive battles of the Second World War - the Battle of Monte Cassino. This picture book is based on the true story of the bear cub adopted by young Polish solders who fought in that battle. Wojtek became the soldiers' companion through the Italian campaign and, after they made him an Officer, stood alongside them at Monte Cassino, ultimately emigrating with them to Scotland when all were left stateless at the end of the war. A story of loyalty, friendship, family and displacement amongst the senseless horror of war.
