Burgess, a journalist and novelist and an RAF flyer during WWII, presents the true story behind the classic WWII movie, The Great Escape, based on the book of the same title by Paul Brickhill. Drawing on sources not available to Brickhill, including interviews and long-hidden German documents, Burgess chronicles the events leading to the night in March 1944 when 76 Allied POWs slid through a 350-foot tunnel to escape a high-security German prison camp, and recounts the manhunt after the war for the Nazis responsible for the deaths of the escapees. B&w historical photos are included. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
