This once-secret account of prisoner of war escapes, prepared for
the Air Ministry in 1951, draws upon first-hand experience of
Germany's notorious camps. Written by a POW who himself tried to
escape, it explores the most daring attempts ever made, including
those from Colditz, the 'escapers gaol', and Stalag Luft III, where
the famous 'Great Escape' tunnel is described by two of the
officers who created it. Escape from Germany vividly portrays life
in the camp and the meticulous planning behind each escape, from
the hollowed-out vaulting horse concealing active tunnels to
strategies for gathering intelligence, forging documents and
producing clothing and maps. Dramatic true stories reveal the
success - and failure - of journeys outside the camps, as fugitive
POWs struggle to freedom inside beer barrels, leaping from trains
or hidden in ship's coal bunkers. Compelling accounts combine with
original photographs, documents and maps to celebrate the spirit
and ingenuity of those who battled to be free
