9781844154388: MOONLESS NIGHT (Pen and Sword Military Classics)

From the moment he was shot down to the final whistle, Jimmy James' one aim as a POW of the Germans was to escape.

The Great Escaper describes his experiences and those of his fellow prisoners in the most gripping and thrilling manner. The author made more than 12 escape attempts including his participation in The Great Escape, where 50 of the 76 escapees were executed in cold blood on Hitler's orders.

On re-capture, James was sent to the infamous Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp where, undeterred, he tunneled out. That was not the end of his remarkable story.

Moonless Night has strong claim to be the finest escape story of the Second World War.

From AudioFile:

James is the sort of person they write legends about. A participant in the mass escape that was the basis for the movie THE GREAT ESCAPE, he made 12 escape attempts during his five years of German captivity. A persistent chap, his last escape was from a concentration camp. Terry Wale does a fine job reading James's story. He has a clear, dignified voice that is wonderfully understated in expression. In fact, he speaks as some might expect a British officer to speak. However, the production often sounds as if it had been recorded in a muffled echo chamber. This is unpleasant to the listener and does not do Wale's performance justice. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
