World War II - The Great Escapes



We have been brought up on the books and films about prisoners of war escaping from captivity.  Who does not remember "The Wooden Horse",  "The Colditz Story", "The Great Escape" ?  Come with us to visit the sites of these heroic escapes - from Oflag VI-B (the Warburg Wire Job),  through Colditz Castle to Stalag Luft III in post-War Poland, scene of both the Wooden Horse and the Great Escape.  (And we make a stop at the Eder Dam on the way, too)
