Details

A medieval castle a few miles from Florence was repurposed during the Second World War into a small prison camp for high-ranking Allied personnel. The officers detained there launched a number of daring escapes. This account describes the meticulous planning and preparation that went into them, the exciting breakouts themselves, and the subsequent attempts to avoid detection in occupied territory.
