Diary reveals Great Escape plot

Diary reveals Great Escape plot

Further wartime tales here. What I particularly like about this piece is how the flippant comments made by the diary's author encapsulate so well the British traits of self-deprecation, ingenuity, resolve and a stiff-upper-lip in the face of adversity. The best thing about war stories is that they are all, without exception, fascinating. Each and every one is an example of heroism and hardship, the likes of which we may never know. In this case, another little aspect of an important time in history has been illuminated where before there was darkness, if you'll forgive the awkward expression.
