A biography of Roger Bushell, the mastermind of the mass breakout from Stalag III in March 1944, which was immortalised in the Hollywood film 'The Great Escape'. Ties in with the 70th anniversary of the breakout, and is based on Bushell's private papers, which his family donated to the Imperial War Museum in 2011. After successfully escaping, Bushell was murdered shortly after by the Gestapo.
