The attempt to liberate 200 PoWs in one go from Stalag Luft III through a 340-foot tunnel was the most ambitious prison break of the war, immortalized in The Great Escape – and the head carpenter on the project was John 'Willy' Williams. Written by his niece, this book tells Williams's story, including how he was one of the 76 men who made it beyond the wire, getting as far as Czechoslovakia before being caught and executed when just 24 years old.
