The main character is a Communist, George Heisler; the narrative follows his path across the countryside, taking refuge with those few who are willing to risk a visit from the Gestapo, while the rest of the escapees are gradually overtaken by their hunters. The title of the book comes from a conceit of the prison camp. The current officer in charge has ordered the creation of seven crosses from the trees nearby, to be used when the prisoners are returned not for crucifixion, but a subtler torture: the escapees are made to stand all day in front of their crosses, and will be punished if they falter."; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 338 pages.
