timing is everything,
This review is from: The Long Way Home (Paperback)
Although its not the best written book on the subject
what is simply breathtakingly stagering is that three escaped pow's are not only on the run at the exact same time as the great escape, its is that they pass through the very same area onroute to freedom.
reading accounts of jimmy james one of the great escapers the whole country was awash with local militia looking for the airmen from stalag luft drie how did they pull it off!!!
I like the way the author analytically looks for reasons why they where astonishingly fortunate
these men could never be so lucky again
