Product description

Review

'Felton's action-packed account provides a fitting tribute to the ingenuity of the escapees and of the brave civilians who subsequently assistant them.' * The Good Book Guide * 'The story of a lesser known - but perhaps the greatest - escape of Second World War prisoners has been told in a new book.' * The Scotsman * 'Major Tom Stallard, born in this city in 1904, masterminded one of the most daring and ingenious bids for freedom ever, yet he remains an unsung hero. That is until now, because a major new book plans to put the record straight, and give Bath's hero the place in history he deserves.' * Bath Chronicle * 'This generally untold story of the daring night escape of August 30, 1942, is now skilfully retold by author Mark Felton [...] in his new book Zero Night. For once, the book's blurb is accurate in describing Felton's racy work as "a rip-roaring adventure, all the more thrilling for being true".' -- Mike Scanlon * The Newcastle Herald * 'The story of what is being hailed as the greatest escape of the Second World War has been told for the first time.' -- John Coles * Western Daily Express * 'The story of the greatest escape of World War II has been told for the first time. The audacious breakout saw dozens of Allied prisoners of war scale the wire at a camp deep in Nazi Germany using four huge ladders they had made and disguised as bookshelves. During the breakout 32 prisoners got out and legendary pilot Douglas Bader, who was a prisoner in Oflag VI-B camp near Warburg, described it as the most daring escape of the war.' -- Keiligh Baker * Daily Mail * 'This is undeniably history as it should be told and a thundering good read.'
