From the Inside Flap:

With only their bare hands and the crudest of homemade tools, they sank shafts, built underground railroads, forged passports, drew maps, faked weapons, and tailored German uniforms and civilian clothes.

They developed a fantastic security system to protect themselves from the German "ferrets" who prowled the compounds with nerve-racking tenacity and suspicion.

It was a split-second operation as delicate and as deadly as a time bomb. It demanded the concentrated devotion and vigilance of more than six hundred men -- every single one of them, every minute, every hour, every day, and every night for more than a year.

About the Author:

Paul Brickhill (1916-1991) was an Australian journalist and writer whose World War II books were turned into popular movies. He was directly involved with the escape from Stalag Luft III, although he was one of the prisoners left behind. After the war, he wrote the first major account of the escape in The Great Escape (1950), bringing the incident to a wide public attention. He went on to write two other bestselling war books, The Dam Busters and Reach for the Sky. All three books were made into feature films.



Simon Vance is an award-winning actor and an AudioFile Golden Voice with over forty Earphones Awards. He has won thirteen prestigious Audie Awards and was Booklist's very first Voice of Choice in 2008. He has narrated more than eight hundred audiobooks over almost thirty years, beginning when he was a radio newsreader for the BBC in London.
