Originally prepared for the Air Ministry in 1951, this once- secret account of prisoner of war escapes draws on first-hand experience of Germany's notorious prison camps. Written by a POW who himself tried to escape, the book vividly portrays life in the camps as it examines the most daring attempts ever made, including those from Colditz and from Stalag Luft III, site of the famous 'Great Escape' tunnel, described here by two of the officers who created it.
