5.0 out of 5 stars
An important piece of history and not just escapism., 20 Jun. 2014
This is a must for anyone interested in second world war escape stories. Furthermore, it makes one realise just how brave, dedicated, innovative and determined "ordinary people" were in times past. Not only does the book detail an exciting, dangerous and seemingly impossible escape from what was a fortress, it illustrates how people can show quite extraordinary qualities when the "chips are down". Well worth a read !
