Adapted from the classic novel 'The Tunnel Escape' by Eric Williams, this is the story of British POWs trying to escape from a Nazi camp through a tunnel underneath their exercise horse. As their huts are too far from the boundary, one of the officers decides to start a daily gymnastics session, close to the boundary, in order to make digging a tunnel a lot easier and less likely to arouse suspicion.

For those who wish to read the story I recommend 'The Wooden Horse' by Eric Williams or in my opinion the better account 'Stolen Journey' by Oliver Philpot. The later is an excellent read. I also recommend this film. Well made and accurate.
Yes this film is dated, and yes it is in black and white, but it graphically shows the determination of our fighting men under adversity - in this case, possibly it was that wrinkly in the corner of your pub nursing a pint!
Someone one said that "Truth is stranger that fiction"; it is, and without the assistance of Hollywood!
The Wooden Horse is an amazing true story, one that needs to be known as true. A wonderful film full of action and realism. Plus great acting!
