This is the story of the largest mass escape of Prisoners of War during World War Two. This extraordinary enterprise surpassed even the famous "Great Escape" of 1944 by British and Allied... More > officers from Stalag Luft III - yet few people are even aware of it. The extraordinary events took place at a PoW Camp near Bridgend, South Wales and they continue to raise questions, even today. How many prisoners were actually involved in the break out?
