Escape And Evasion

£3.99

Product description

Men captured in war, deprived of purpose as well as liberty, naturally think of escape. In the Second World War, with vast numbers held in captivity for years, escape was extraordinarily frequent, though escape to freedom inevitably less so. Here the author explores the planning and execution of eighteen great escapes, some of them not written about before, and describes in fascinating detail the groups of resistance fighters on the outside who organised escape routes and passed their fugitives from one safe house to another on the way to that last, dangerous, border crossing. There are accounts of German and Japanese prisoners, as well as those from British, Commonwealth and American units, all involved in remarkable escapes.
