Details

Known as the ‘Black Hole’, Holzminden was the most infamous of the First World War prison camps that housed airmen of the Royal Flying Corps. Bascomb uses unpublished memoirs to tell the gripping story of the courageous prisoners who tunnelled their way out of Holzminden and dashed 150 miles to Holland before sending a telegram to taunt the sadistic Camp Commandant and returning to Blighty for a private audience at Windsor Castle.
