The Tunnel (Paperback)
This book traces Peter Howard, who was to become one of The Wooden Horse escapers, from his being shot down, through his capture, interrogation and first two POW camps.

This is a thrilling opportunity to read what is virtually 'lost' masterpiece of the Prisoner of War escaping genre.
