The Great War: Escape To Liberty

By David Wilson

General non-fiction, Action & adventure | Paperback, eBook


"The Great War: Escape To Liberty" gives an account of four separate prisoner-of-war escape attempts and the trials and tribulations encountered during their journeys to the frontier. Included are the escape attempts of a French Sergeant-Major, a Captain in the Indian Cavalry, a Pilot from the American Flying Corps and a Captain from the Royal Air Force. Capture could be humiliating and they could be ashamed of being forced to surrender. Planning the escape kept minds occupied and the escape itself required tremendous physical fitness, courage, cunning and stamina under the worst conditions imaginable. It also showed their determination to continue to fight for their country. Their jubilation as they crossed the frontier must have been immense.



I live in the North of Scotland with my wife, Tess, amongst beautiful scenery which gives me inspiration to write. Deer and rabbits are frequently in the garden and buzzards sit on the fence posts waiting for their prey. My hobbies include poetry, fishing the small hill lochs, photography, landscape painting and walking between the hills in this beautiful landscape. I have written four books about the First World War, composed a book of the old Scottish poets and I am at present writing short fictional humorous stories.
