The Last Escape

John Nichol & Tony Rennell



The Last Escape by Tony Rannell and John Nichol is an extraordinary look at the final days of World War II.

As WW2 drew to a close, hundreds of thousands of British and American prisoners of war, held in camps in Nazi-occupied Europe, faced the prospect that they would never get home alive. In the depths of winter,

their guards harried them on marches out of their camps and away from the armies advancing into the heart of Hitler's defeated Germany. Hundreds died from exhaustion, disease and starvation. THE LAST ESCAPE is told through the testimony of those heroic men, now in their seventies and eighties and telling their stories publicly for the first time.

'Gripping, moving and thoughtful. The excellent team of Nichol and Rannell have done it again' Patrick Bishop, author of Fighter Boys
