By Oliver Cutton-Brock (Hardback)
Forced to abandon their aircraft behind enemy lines, several thousand Allied airmen evaded capture and reached freedom, by land, sea and air during Second World War.
Respected historian Oliver Clutton-Brock has researched in depth this secret world of evasion, uncovering some treachery and many hitherto unpublished details, operations and photos.
Packed with information, key figure biographies and listings- 2198 evaders identified- RAF Evaders is a valuable testimony to the courage of all those involved.
Purchased on a whim, I'm now really glad I picked this one up. A very readable, detailed and often touching account of the escape and evasion organisations that operated in occupied Europe during the World War Two. It's a very substantial work with a high word count per page, this is no fleeting coffee table work, A very worthy account of an under appreciated subject.
