    Fantastic read. It tells of POW's in WW 2 as the Germans are in full retreat. It paints a picture that puts you right there with the men as they try to stay alive till the wars end. Nice stuff.

    Australia should be very proud of author STEPHEN DANDO-COLLINS.

    This latest WWII story has been described by the NY Daily News as "GRIPPING".

    The Greatest American WWII story NEVER told! It's selling like hot cakes!

    A wonderful and interesting book. Before the famous Great Escape at Sagan in 1944, The Allied escape from the POW camp from Schubin, Poland was the largest and the most successful Allied escape from a POW camp. This book also tells of General Patton's raid on the POW camp at Hammelburg to rescue POW's, including his son in law Lt. Col. John Waters.
