This is an auction for THE GREAT ESCAPER: THE LIFE AND DEATH OF ROGER BUSHELL - LOVE, BETRAYAL, BIG X AND THE GREAT ESCAPE, by Simon Pearson.

Reviews from Amazon.com:

"Whilst Roger Bushell is your typical British spirit, he was in fact South African. However, he came to symbolise that great British attitude that won them the war - the Blitz spirit. This is a great story about a truly great man and of course, his leading 'Big X' role in The Great Escape. But it's also a story of sadness given the results of his romantic dalliances in Prague particularly and indeed, at home. It's a story for boys of courage and derring-do. It's a story of how an evil Nazi regime was brought slowly, to its knees, by people like Roger Bushell. However, it's a story that so well written, so well researched and so easy to read, it typifies the comment "unputdownable". It's just that. Get it, read it and be enthralled. Magnificent."

"This book is the first comprehensive biography of this unusual warrior, who fought his battles from behind the wire of a PoW camp, with the same determined energy and courage of his colleagues in the skies of Europe. His fate was truly tragic, but his example remains inspiring. This book does justice to a British airman and warrior who deserves to be remembered as he was - and not as a movie."
