Cloth; 8vo. Xi, 352 pages. Frontispiece photograph of author. Illustrated with photographs and diagrams. Last page is map showing German prisoner of war camps. The author was Head of Escape Intelligence at Stalag Luft III and after the war was asked by the Air Ministry Historical Branch to write the history of RAF escapes for Service use only and they permitted this abbreviated account to be published. Of all the prisoners of war held by the Germans during World War Two, only 30 managed their way to Britain or a neutral country. The experiences of many escapees and PoW's were held in a file by the government. This book contains extracts from that evidence as it was compiled by the author.
