Publisher    Ian Allan, London, (1974), Ist edition.

Seller ID   6491

"Less well known (than stories of the Colditz and Stalag III escapers) but equally heroic were those of the large numbers of Royal Air Force NCO pilots, observers and air gunners who fell into German hands...A particularly notorius NCO camp was Heydekrug on the Baltic coast in what was East Prussia - the scene of one of the most remarkable POW exploits of the war. A tough, daring and resourceful escaper, Warrant Officer George Grimson, succeeded in establishing an escape route within Nazi Germany itself. Destined to be one of the great classic escape books, 'Sergeant Escapers' tells the story of George Grimson and his fellow NCOs and their attempt, successful and unsuccessful, to outwit their captors, frequently in conditions that made Colditz look like a rest camp. The author...was himself a POW and an eye-witness to the unfolding drama of the Grimson escape saga." Previous owner's bookplate on free front endpaper, minor edge wear to boards, spine has glossy finish, front and rear boards are matt with some overspray from spine. Dust jacket has light edge wear, light rubbing, small closed tear on front hinge. VG-/VG-
