LONG ROAD Trials and Tribulations of Airman Prisoners from Stalag Luft VII (Bankau) to Berlin, June 1944-May 1945

Trials and Tribulations of Airman Prisoners from Stalag Luft VII (Bankau) to Berlin, June 1944-May 1945 
A harrowing account of a little-known episode from the dying days of the Second World War. The long road of the title is the 160 mile forced march of 1700 mainly RAF POWs evacuated from their prison camp, Stalag Luft VII in Silesia as the Red Army neared, to new quarters near Denmark. An instant classic of POW literature.
This book is firstly a testament to those of many nationalities who found themselves imprisoned at Stalag Luft VII, Bankau (Luft 7 for short) in Upper Silesia, the Luftwaffe's last prisoner of war camp. Having survived the trauma of action against, and capture by, the enemy, some as far back as 1940, they came from France, the Low Countries, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Poland, the Balkans, Italy, Hungary, the Mediterranean and other seas, and from North Africa. Many of their experiences and adventures have never been documented before. It is also the complete history of their prisoner of war (POW) camp, Luft 7, told in full detail for the first time, a camp that existed for barely thirty-two weeks from its opening in early June 1944 to its closure in mid January 1945.
