I Escape! The Great War’s Most Remarkable POW

£19.99 £3.99

One of the most persistent PoW escapers of all time, the much decorated author, Capt JL Hardy made no fewer than twelve escape attempts from his three and a half years in German captivity in the Great War – five of them being briefly successful, before he made good his final getaway. After the war he had a controversial career in Ireland as a British Auxiliary undercover soldier, allegedly responsible for the deaths of dozens of Irish republicans. On an IRA death list, he managed to escape yet again. His memoirs make enthralling reading, and are a real addition to escape literature.
