Of the ten thousand prisoners of war held by the Germans during World War II only 30 successfully managed their way to Britain or a neutral country. After 1945, many escapees and PoW's were interviewed by the government and a file built up of their experiences and their efforts. These files were kept secret for nearly 40 years, during the Korean War and Cold War, as they contained evidence of enterprise and resilience that could still be useful to the enemy. This book contains extracts from that evidence as it was compiled by the author Aidan Crawley, himself a PoW, RAF officer and MP.
