This book traces Peter Howard, who was to become one of The Wooden Horse escapers, from his being shot down, through his capture, interrogation and first two POW camps. It gets into the mind of a man determined to escape his captors. It shows that for all the many schemes dreamt up, very few ever got started and of those only a tiny handful ever came to fruition - and of those a 'home run' was as rare as a lottery win. But none of this could suppress the determination, ingenuity and courage of those who were driven to try. This is a thrilling opportunity to read what is virtually 'lost' masterpiece of the Prisoner of War escaping genre.
