Overview

"Escape... escape... escape... by God!"' was his constant exhortation. "Never mind hunger pains, discomfort, or any other agony. Let escape become your passion, your one and only obsession until you finally reach home."' Shot down over Berlin in 1941, Richard Pape's saga of captivity is a story of courage unmatched in the annals of escape. Four escapes took him across the breadth of German-occupied Europe; to Poland and Czechoslovakia; to Austria and Hungary. Aggressive and impetuous, his adventures sweep the reader along on a torrent of excitement.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'It's an extraordinary story of British pluck but also very moving. Pape survived torture by the Gestapo but many of those who helped him weren't so lucky'—Mail on Sunday

Meet the Author

Born in 1916, Richard Pape was an irrepressible red-haired Yorkshireman, who joined 609 Squadron as an Auxiliary Airman before the war. He later transferred to Bomber Command. During a bombing raid on Berlin, his plane was shot down close to the border between Germany and Holland. Surviving the crash, he began a hunted existence as he made his way back to Britain through Nazi-occupied Europe. After the war, he became a best-selling author and a renowned adventurer, eventually settling in Australia, where he died in 1995.
