Excellent story told by Jerry Sage, one of the real life POW's held in teh famous Nazi prison camps. Much of "The Great Escape" facts are mentioned here. One thing that impressed me beyond the usual circumstances and ingenuity applied to scape attempts, was how smart and well-versed this man was. He seems to have been quite learned about literature, music, engineering, warfare, culture, hand to hand combat and mitlitary strategies in his early twenties. This is a must-read for WW2 in Europe buff [...]

Almost done with this one. It's a pretty fascinating account just hearing all about the genius of the WW II POW's and they things they invented and the plans they came up with. Pretty amazinga totally different POW experience from Vietnam. More upbeat than so many of the other POW accounts. COL Sage had spirit that wouldn't be crushed.
