It is a swaggering and often amusing story of courage, adventure and love, lost and found, which should be required reading for the generation who will never see a war on the scale fought by these brave men and their comrades.
The Long Way Home is a brilliant story, well told.
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
Definitely recommended reading.

Not that impressed.....the story itself is worthy of writing but it's not written in a way that is interesting.
Also rather short for four and a half quid.
