Breathtaking and mesmerizing, Colditz is a gripping tale of perseverance, heroism, and adventure. Filled with the thrilling never-before-told personal stories of the prisoners of war held within the walls of this medieval fortress turned German high-security prison camp, Colditz offers endlessly intriguing stories of consummate survivors who proved the human spirit to be indomitable. In more than fifty original interviews, the English, French, Dutch, and Polish officers and their guards describe their experiences in the notorious castle. They reveal their boredom and frustrations, as well as the challenges inherent in making maps out of jelly or constructing tunnels with mere cutlery knives. The stories are by turns comic and tragic, as much of their labor and invention ended in failure. But what emerges is a story of breathtaking ingenuity and an intriguing portrait of the fascinating game of wits between captives and captors, who were bound together by mutual respect and extraordinary tolerance.… (mer)

Well researched, well written, and my personal interest comes from a past friendship in Switzerland with a woman, Jane Cabot (also a cousin of Sandy Rotival) who married one of the escapees in 1943 after his escape to Switzerland in 1942 from Colditz. ( )

A wonderful review, not definitive, but if you want that information, there is a series of excellent appendices. It did give a very good overview & narrative over the course of the war & what happened to the inmates throughout. Very moving, especially towards the end. A very good overall summary & highly readable ( )

One of two volumes I own on the Colditz story which is a fascinating tale of ingenuity, courage, and perseverance in the face of incredible odds. Photos of some of the escapers and their disguises is an amazing addition. ( )
