About this Item

Very minor wear on the clean, sound binding. Contents are clean and unworn. DJ is missing a large piece from the top of the front panel and spine, but the flaps, with their valuable information, are intact. (S-8-C) ; 8-1/4" Tall, 256pp. Red cloth, bright gold lettering. TRUE ADVENTURE / WAR. "Twelve great modern escape stories. The accounts are all first-hand and convey exactly and vividly - as no one who was not there could - 'what it was truly like to be that man in that situation at that time'. "Andre Devigny, the French Resistance fighter who escaped from the condemned cell. Winton Sexton, American pilot, jumped a train in Italy and was smuggled into Vatican City. David James, the RNVR officer who 'joined' the Bulgarian Navy. W. B. Thomas, the New Zealander who got away in Greece in spite of a badly wounded thigh. Airey Neave who escaped with a Dutch army officer from the 'escape-proof' Colditz Castle. Anthony Farrar-Hockley, the adjutant of the 'Glorious Gloster', who never stopped escaping in Korea; Christine Arnothy, the young Hungarian girl who escaped with her parents through the Iron Curtain. "Eleven of the stories are told by escapers. The twelfth is by Madame Anne Brusselmans, mother of two young children, who risked torture and death to rescue and help Allied airmen in Brussels, under the nose of the Gestapo. " 8 full-page b/w illustrations which are listed as "Colour Plates" but they are not in color in this second printing. (S-8-C). Bookseller Inventory # 33482
