Description

Escape to Danger by PAUL BRICKHILL and CONRAD NORTON. Pub 1956? (mcmxlvi) 341 pages.

Simply an amazing collection of stories by POW's brickhill & Norton, collected while they were POW in Stalag Luft 3. Very easy to read and hard to put down.

Escape to Danger is the story of the miracles that saved the lives of air- men, amazing survival stories from crashes and jumping without parachutes. then capture and into captivity; and the story of how, later, they staged the Great Tunnel Escape of the second world war, one of the most interesting and thrilling feats of human ingenuity.

'Both world wars have produced epics of escape. I believe that Escape to Danger will take a high place among them. This is the story of perhaps the greatest and certainly the most tragic escape of the last war: the successful efforts of RAF prisoners to tunnel their way for 350 ft. out of Stalag Luft 3.' -Daily Telegraph

'An admirably objective account of new experiences . . . . The picture of captivity is drawn clearly and vigorously, but the main theme is the great mass escape, with its unforgettable grisly consequences. Gay, pungent, stoic, the story moves swiftly to that inevitable climax. This book is a tribute to British audacity and passive courage, and lastly to the memories of fifty murdered men.'-Manchester Guardian
