After the Second World War, Alastair Cram was awarded the Military Cross for his outstanding persistency and ingenuity in repeatedly attempting to escape. This book tells his terrifying, shocking but ultimately inspiring story - one mans wits pitted against the might of Nazi-occupied Europe, with a determination that would never let him yield to captivity, no matter how grim the prospects. David Guss has had access to previously unpublished journals and records, and this book is a lasting tribute to a man whose story might otherwise have been lost and forgotten.
