2nd imp. 1956. 318 pp., 5 ills. D.j., 21 x 14cm. Nr.FINE. The author, who was himself a RAF P.O.W., has written a full history of the escapes made from German camps. Here are accounts of the most brilliant and daring escapes and also the grim and tragic story of the massacre of Stalag Luft III where fifty RAF escapee prisoners were murdered by the Germans. In these camps escape was an obsession and nowhere else was the organisation of escape so carefully planned, the equipment so ingeniously designed and fabricated, or the plans themselves so daring in their conception.
