It demanded the concentrated devotion and vigilance of more than six hundred men for every hour, every day, and every night for more than a year. With only their bare hands and crude homemade tools, they sank shafts, built underground railroads, forged passports, drew maps, faked weapons, and tailored German clothes. They developed a fantastic security system to protect themselves from the Germans who tenaciously prowled the compounds. And against all odds, they pulled off a daring mass escape from a German POW camp.More

Fascinating and exciting!!
Absolutely terrific read that fired my imagination and sent me running to YouTube to find interviews with the POWs that were there. Amazing to know that the technical aspects of the dig as portrayed in the film were 100% true. The book provides even more jaw dropping details and wily tricks not covered in the film. Wonderful!! Get it! You won't be sorry!

A testament to ingenuity and perseverence
