About This Book

For centuries war has come with a hefty price, costing many their lives or freedom. Here, Terry Treadwell explores true stories of daring escapes and the incredible lengths people will go to get back home; from the courageous people who organised secret escape lines across several countries, and the desperate soldiers who were guided along them, to the enterprising prisoners who plotted their way out of fortresses using tunnels and disguises. While exploring the events of Stalag Luft III and the Great Escape, Freedom Trails also looks at lesser known escapes from the First and Second World Wars as well as the Korean War, revealing bravery and ingenuity that far surpasses the plot of any film.
