Moonless Night by Jimmy James - The author
was one of the 76 "Great Escapers of Stalag Luft
III" and also an early resident of Stalag
Luft I. Here he relates how escaping
became a way of life. He relates in detail the
only successful tunneling escape from Stalag
Luft I (by his tunneling partner John Shore),
the details of his escape as part of the "Great
Escape" from Stalag Luft III and his escape from
Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. A remarkable
memoir, not only because the author carries the
reader with him with his descriptions of the
escape projects, but as a record of the triumph
of the human spirit over adversity.
