Notes

First edition, first impression. Trial of the officers responsible for running the Air Force Transit Camp - Durchgangslager der Luftwaffe - which in June 1941 was the scene of the first mass escape of the war by British officers. "This most interesting case is noteworthy for the large number of the R.A.F. who appeared as witnesses, or whose affidavits were adduced in evidence, both for the prosecution and the defence. Many said that the camp was well run and that the Kommandant was efficient and good to the prisoners. Two of the accused were found guilty and sentenced to five years imprisonment, one to three years, and the other two were acquitted" (jacket blurb).
