    Poorly written, poorly paced book. Choppy and disorganized. I imagine there's some good research behind this book, but the author simply doesn't know how to tell a story.

    I came across the Stalag Luft III escape and murders during research for another remarkable event that took place in the night of March 24, 1944. Out of five books I consulted on the subject, Tim Carroll’s account stands out by a long shot. It’s a well researched, detailed picture of the participants on both sides and Carroll seldom strays from the main event. He doesn’t hover over the well covered ground but follows the fate of the escapees – as well as some of their captors- all the wa [...]

    I used to think many of the incidents depicted in the Hollywood movie, "The Great Escape" were staged for dramatic effect, or else combined the escape activities of other prisoner of war compounds; but not after reading Tim Carroll's book. Virtually all of what you see onscreen was accurately portrayed, with for the most part only three exceptions: Steve McQueen had enough clout to compel the inclusion of the motorcycle scenes; the escape in the Luftwaffe trainer involved prisoners from another [...]

    Fills in the blanksThis well written account of the Escape from Stalag Luft I I I made famous by the film provides accurate details and corrects the fictional dramatic elements of the true story. Particularly interesting is the Epilogue that reports how the perpetrators of the murders of the 50 RAF officers were tracked down and brought to justice.

    Tim Carroll promises to deliver "the full story" of the Great Escape and in a sense that's what he does - there's a lot of material here - but it's poorly presented. Carroll is a better historian than he is a writer. Everything he presents is pretty much available somewhere else and is presented better there, but you're going to have to read a lot more stuff to find it. Pretty much all the memoirs by the participants are better than this; try Moonless Night: The World War Two Escape Epic, Under [...]

    After reading Paul Brickhill's "The Great Escape" I was curious to know more about the story of Stalag Luft III. This book was just the thing. Tim Carroll helps to provide a more expanded version of "The Great Escape". As other reviewers have noted this book is a little disorganized but I didn't mind this at all given the information Carroll provided. Included in this book are some of the back stories of the men who took part in the escape operations. Carroll also tells the story of some other " [...]

    I thought it was ok to I liked it. I wouldn't buy it though. I thought there were a couple of really good chapters (details of escape) and a couple blah ones (just common stuff with no specific stuff). Look it up in the library and check it out there.

    The beginning of this book read like the part of the Old Testament where names are just listed off and nothing is happening. The tunnels are great feats of engineering and it's inspiring what the POWs were able to do with what they had but this isn't the best-written book.
