Colditz

(2001)
A non fiction book by

 
Colditz high security camp contained every persistent escaper, trouble maker and valuable hostage captured by the Germans in World War II. It was considered escape proof but the very opposite proved to be true. The prisoners pooled their collected talents to create the greatest escape academy of the war. Here, Henry Chancellor tells the prisoners' own story. Many have never spoken before but using over 50 original interviews, the English, French, Dutch and Polish officers, and their guards describe their experiences in the notorious castle, and their escape across Nazi Germany. It is a story of ingenuity and daring, a game of wit between captives and captors.
