Captured after being shot down in a Wellington bomber in June 1940, Jimmy James took part in no fewer than twelve escape attempts including the Great Escape. In this book he describes his experiences in graphic and gripping terms and how he was sent to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, sentenced to death by Himmler.
This is an inspiring, exciting and compelling book about determination and fortitude in the face of incredible danger and hardship.
