Disagree with the prior, less than stellar review. I have read this book several times, and it gives me butterflies everytime Rocky is about to be impaled with a bayonet. The Long Walk is also good, but they are different in that one seems a single long challenge, and this one is a series of obstables and near death experiences to be overcome. I love it every time!

I'm a huge fan of WWII escape books. The one that I read just before this was 'The Long Walk'. That was a truly amazing story of human triumph. It was very well written & was well worth the read. This one, in part because it was written by the main character's son and not himself, just isn't nearly as gripping. I simply got the impression that "Rocky" was lucky more than anything. While luck is certainly a crucial part of any successful escape, there didn't seem to be any amount of thought or real planning. It's an easy quick read. If you haven¿t read many of the other escape stories of this era you will most likely enjoy it.
