About the event

The Nazis thought the Stalag Luft III camp was escape-proof, but 76 Allied airmen proved them wrong. The mass escape of 76 Allied airmen from a Nazi POW camp in March 1944 remains one of history's most famous prison breaks and fifty of the men were found by the Nazis and executed.  Come and hear the real version of the events, not the version we 'know' from the film!

Guy Walters is a British author, historian, and journalist. He has written and edited nine books on the Second World War, including thrillers, and a historical analysis of the Berlin Olympic Games. A frequent contributer to the History Channel, and a journalist writing for many of our major newspapers on the historical influences for today's politics.
