The Great Escape
On the night of March 24, 1944, eighty airmen crawled through a 400-foot-long tunnel, code-named “Harry”, and dashed from Stalag Luft III, the infamous WWII German POW camp. It became known as The Great Escape. The breakout took a year to plan, involved 2,000 POWs, and prompted a massive manhunt across occupied Europe. All but three escapers were recaptured; on Hitler’s orders fifty were murdered.
