Escape! Kiwi POWs on the run in World War II
Edited by Matthew Wright

During World II War many New Zealanders fell into enemy hands. Once they became prisoners, many plotted their escapes but few succeeded.

Escape! edited by Matthew Wright, recounts our escapers' tales in their own words.

These are the stories of everyday New Zealanders - farmers, professional soldiers, a politician - and a lawyer among them who took huge risks in the pursuit of freedom.

`As the vehicle gathered speed, I swung over the tailboard and ran ... I saw the look of horror on the face of the guard. His frantic cries of `Halt! Halt!' rang in my ears as I lumbered down the street. Clear by a hundred metres, I turned to wave a triumphant farewell.'
-Peter Winter

'...whatever the immediate future held, at this moment I was alive and free. I have never been able to recapture in retrospect the fullness of that moment.'
-James Hargest
