Eric Williams, an RAF bomber captain, was shot down over Germany and imprisoned in the notorious POW camp Stalag Luft III. In this lightly fictionalized account – a classic since its first publication in 1949, and filmed a year later – he tells the gripping story of his escape: how he constructed a tunnel, concealing its entrance beneath a vaulting horse; dodged searchlights and guard dogs; crossed Germany on foot and by train; and stowed away aboard a Danish ship.
