Never before World War II were there so many prisoners of war... at one point, around five hundred thousand: Japanese, American, German, Italian, British, Irish, etc. This collection of seven amazing escapes from war prisons is a testament to the amazing stamina, courage and ingenuity displayed by those who sought to escape their captors -- in Poland, Germany, the Philippines, Italy, Australia and an American camp in the Arizona desert.
A concise, short work written for young readers but of general interest as well. George Sullivan is a prolific, award-winning author, whose works include MR. PRESIDENT, ALAMO!, STRANGE BUT TRUE STORIES OF WORLD WAR II, CIVIL WAR AT SEA, GREAT IMPOSTERS, and many "In Their Own Words" biographies from Scholastic Books.
