Sobre o livro
Almost 75 years ago, MI9 dreamt up the most audacious escape and evasion plan of WWII. Formulated by Airey Neave, one of the first men ever to escape from Colditz, this plan was one of suberfuge, concealment and deception on a scale never seen before. Choosing a forest in the heart of France, right next to one of the German Army's largest ammunition dumps, Neave, Belgian agents and the French Resistance would secretly transport and hide Allied pilots and soldiers within feet of the Germans. Nobody thought it would work, but such was the success of the secret camp, that over 150 Allies lived there for three months in the run-up to D-Day.
