A spine-tingling, suspenseful true story of escape during World War II. Spring, 1943; Stalag Luft III, Germany: every prisoner in the Nazi camps had one thought in mind?to get out. The organization was in place, with men digging hidden passageways and squads dispersing yellow sand in the middle of soccer scrimmages. Forgers worked to create false travel documents. Tailors stitched up civilian suits from blankets. Their goal? To break out of an ?escape-proof” German prison camp and raise havoc throughout the German countryside. The stakes were high, however: anyone caught would be executed. Author Mike Meserole keeps the tension high in this newly-written tale filled with daring and danger. Kids will hang on to every word.
