It is a compilation of the most spectacular escape attempts written by the escapers themselves. Eggers supports the stories with extracts from his Colditz diary which ran to 26 copybooks, with stories about the German staff and their characters, and a short account of the end of his war when he became a prisoner himself. It has some memorably funny moments (especially the tale of Max and Moritz, who filled in" on parades)Hide synopsis

Description:Very Good. 221 Pages. May 1975 Edition of the 1961 Copyright....Very Good. 221 Pages. May 1975 Edition of the 1961 Copyright. Some cover wear and a very slight hint of age-tanning to pages. Tight and square book with no marks or stamsps. Colditz was the best-known of all the German POW prison camps. A fortress where only the most dangerous and habitual escapers were confined. The Germans thought it was an excellent idea to try and keep all of their habitual escapees in the one jail. During the latter part of the war the author was in charge of security at the prison and he reveals for the first time from the German side, just how surprising the result was of their plan. The book is both entertaining and exciting. It is one of the finest and most unusual stories to come out of the Second World War. Crammed with techniques for escaping. Contents in 19 Chapters: Learning the Soft Way, Learning the Hard Way, The First Successful Escape, Skirmishings and Exchanges, Sniping and Sapping, Private Enterprise, Overconfidence Undermined, A Reshuffle, The Game Goes On, Strange Faces Red Faces, Son et Lumnjiere, End of the International, Franz Joseph, No Co-operation, Waiting for the Bell, Breaking Point, The Greatest Escaper, The Fading Light, The Highlights Go, and Roles Reversed.

Having read numerous books by POW's who were held by the Germans at Colditz Castle during WWII, it was fascinating to read the story from the perspective of a German commander at the castle.
