"This brilliant and dramatic account is a fitting testament to a heroic episode in a war that has for too long been simplified as nothing more than the mud and blood of the trenches." (The Good Book Guide)
The greatest WWI escape story from Germany's most notorious prisoner-of-war campSee all Product description

Although somewhat shorter than the other two books mentioned, only 300 pages, it doesn't detract from this book. Packed with detail and some good photos this book not only informed me, but also really entertained me, I was amazed at the ingenuity and at times the humor of the prisoners.
I never really knew anything about what prisoners experienced during the Great War and although this book deals mainly with the officers camp at Holzminden it gives a good insight into what it must have been like, and in common with the other two books I have read from this author, at times this book reads like a novel and is difficult to put down.
I thoroughly recommend this book.
