During the Second World War, within the walls of the Colditz POW camp, a blank notebook was passed among the prisoners for them to write down their wartime experiences. This volume reproduces the original pencil-written pages in facsimile, as well as including transcripts, together with sketches and poems. The stories, some of them now famous through books, films and television, report a variety of events including land, sea and air battles and tales of incarceration and escape.
