Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: When I began my operational career, I had precisely two hours and ten minutes' worth of experience as pilot in command of a bomber at night The product of a lifetimes reflection, The Last Escaper is Peter Tunstalls unforgettable memoir of his days in the RAF and as one of the most celebrated of all British POWs. Tunstall was an infamous tormentor of his German captors dubbed the cooler king (on account of his long spells in solitary), but also a highly skilled pilot, loyal friend and trusted colleague. Single-mindedness is often the key to success in most things and, if what I am told is true that I was to chalk up the all-comers British record number of escape attempts during the next twelve months I attribute this entirely to that state of mind Without false pride or bitterness, Tunstall recounts the high jinks of training to be a pilot, terrifying bombing raids in his Hampden and of elaborate escape attempts at once hilarious and deadly serious all part of a poignant and human war story superbly told by a natural raconteur. we had established that one could get away with using German uniform. After that, it became a regular stunt and my own speciality The Last Escaper is a charming and hugely informative last testament written by the last man standing from the Colditz generation who risked their lives in the Second World War. It will take its place as one of the classic first-hand accounts of that momentous conflict.
