I first learned about John Dodge 'The Dodger' from Paul Brickhill's "The Great Escape". A book review in The Telegraph lead me to purchase the book. It is a very well researched volume about this remarkable man, who must have had at least eighteen lives, dodging death on so many occasions. His family and wider circle, not to mention his personality, opened doors to him all his life until his death in his early sixties. A book well worth the money.

A book that more than tells the story of the film through the eyes and experiences of one of the few. An insight into his fellow comrades and indeed their captors. Excellent reading.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought the book because I live in the village of Ferring in the same road to where Dodger had his house. I have always been fascinated by him and his mother who had a dramatic impact on the growth of the village in the 1920 s and 30 s.

It is a fascinating storey of how a man - Colonel Dodge - was able to live a privileged life due to the wealth of his mother. He was related to Winston Churchill and, after capture early in the war, made sure that the Germans were aware of this. So, as a POW, he had a fairly comfortable existence. He was involved in the Great Escape and was one of the few who was not shot mainly as a result of the Churchill connection.

A fascinating read.

What an interesting character - and what an adventurous life he led. Very well written more like a novel than a biography.
