"For you, the war is over!" That's what the Allied airmen shot down and imprisoned by the Germans were told by their captors on their first day. But these brave men knew that they still had an important duty- escape and cause as much havoc behind enemy lines as possible! The most audacious escape plan of all was hatched by an extraordinary group of men in 1943. It would involve hundreds of men digging three long tunnels deep underground, disposing of tons of sand, counterfeiting documents, and inventing tools right under the watchful eyes of their Nazi guards. The plan was for 200 men to escape one dark winter night. Could they do it?.
