After Dunkirk M19, the department looking after escape and evasion, began to establish escape lines in occupied territory, invariably with the help of natives. Many escapers were helped in this way whilst many others had to rely on their own ingenuity to find their way home. This book recounts, often in their own words, the stories of such evaders.
