David Wilsonabout this book: "Escape To Liberty" gives an account of four separate prisoner-of-war attempts. These include a French Sergeant-Major, a Captain in the Indian Cavalry, a pilot from the American Flying Corps and a Captain from the Royal Air Force. The book was part of my research into the First World War as it was the centenary of the end of the war last year. Isolation, fear, boredom and humiliation in being captured all lead to the determination of some prisoners to escape. Apart from physical stamina that must be acquired under the worst possible conditions one has to possess courage, cunning and determination. To reach the border to freedom is a tremendous achievement, with all its trials and tribulations along the way, and the dream of being reunited with family and friends. I love the cover of the book with the two small girls writing on the wall "Please No More War Love". What courage and bravery our soldiers possessed on the battlefield and what will and determination to escape when taken prisoner to enable them to re-join the war.
