This is the story of the largest scale escape of Prisoners of War during World War Two. This extraordinary enterprise surpassed even the famous "Great Escape" by British and Allied officers... More > in 1944 from Stalag Luft III - yet few people are even aware of it. And the escape took place on British soil! The PoW Camp at the centre of the controversy was Camp 198 at Island Farm near Bridgend, South Wales. And there are unanswered questions, even now. How many prisoners were actually involved in the break out? And did any of them make it home? The author, who lived and worked in and around Bridgend for thirty years, has carefully trawled the archives in an attempt to uncover the truth. The result is a novel which is both honest to the spirit of events and entertaining in its speculation of what may have taken place behind the facade of official misinformation. "The book is a great read, the story flows nicely at a comfortable pace." - Maj. John A Thomas MA, TD**, Director of the 1940's Swansea Bay Museum.< Less
