I first read "They Have Their Exits" in the late 1970s when I was about 11. It was an old yellowing, fragile 1950s paperback copy bought cheaply from the church jumble sale.â ¨The man himself was still alive then, although as a young boy I didn't really know who he was. It was a shock a few months later to hear on the TV news about his murder in a car-bomb attack. In recent years I kept meaning to re-read the book which surely has to be one of the most famous of all WW2 escape stories. The latest paperback edition arrived and am happy to say it up to the usual high production standards of Pen & Sword. All in all an excellent read of one of the classic stories to come from WW2.â ¨According to the back cover all the royalties from this edition are being donated to 'The Airey Neave Trust' so that's an even better reason to buy a copy. www.ww2talk.com and Heritage-Group.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I first heard of airey neave when i was stil at school and the ira killed him. My grandfather told me he was the first british officer to escape colditz ( then a popular tv series)
I have read about him in books about colditz but this is the complete story of his escape.
The book carries you right through Switzerland france and spain then to england. The gem in this book tells you what happened to escapers when they got back home, not usually in other escape books ive read.
Airey's writing is serious and doesn't contain the humour that you get in some of these books. This is not a bad thing as it shows that airey didnt see escaping as a sport. Thoroughly enjoyed this book
If you have respect for history and the lessons that can be learned from those that have gone before, then I suspect that like me, you will thoroughly enjoy his tale.
