Summary The great escape: Over six hundred Allied prisoners banded together to dig three highly sophisticated escape tunnels from the German prison camp Stalag Luft III. Each tunnel was outfitted with railways, electric lights, and even underground air pumps.
Nazi prison escape: Colditz Castle in Germany boasted medieval walls 12 feet thick and 100 feet tall, surrounded by double-fenced barbed wire, battlements 75 feet thick, and around-the-clock armed sentries. Reveals the daring schemes and ingenious devices that helped over 300 prisoners attempt breakouts.
