Told of 76 British pilot officers who attempted an escape from a German POW camp. It is unsure how many actually made it to freedom, but the estimated numbers range from 3-22. Not only was the purpose to escape, but also to tie up German resources in the manhunt. 50 of those caught were executed on the orders of Hitler. Non-fiction. 349 pages (only $1.49 on Kindle)

I have read many accounts from WW2 but never a story like this. Amazing.

Good biography on Douglas Bader, a fighter pilot in WW II who lost both legs and still kept flying.
