Author-ized! Book Clubbing Book of the Day Read, Watch, Listen

In The Big Break, we follow famous POWs, such as General Eisenhower’s personal aide, General Patton’s son-in-law, and Ernest Hemingway’s eldest son, as the first American escapes via a tunnel in a stinking latrine, with almost 250 US officers following closely behind in a mass break. The Schubin escapes are by far the largest Allied POW escape of the second World War, surpassing even The Great Escape of 1944. Historian Stephen Dando-Collins chronicles the gripping story of irrepressible Americans determined to be free, brave Poles risking their lives to help them, and dogmatic Nazis determined to stop them.
