Boldness Be My Friend

Richard Pape

1 Reviews

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), British & Irish history

One of the remarkable stories from World War Two Series.

'Escape... escape... escape... by God!' was his constant exhortation. 'Never mind hunger pains, discomfort, or any other agony. Let escape become your passion, your one and only obsession until you finally reach home.'

Shot down over Berlin in 1941, Richard Pape's saga of captivity is a story of courage unmatched in the annals of escape. Four escapes took him across the breadth of German-occupied Europe; to Poland and Czechoslovakia; to Austria and Hungary. Aggressive and impetuous, his adventures sweep the reader along on a torrent of excitement.
