Horace Greasley: British prisoner of war broke out of Nazi camp 200 times.. to meet girl - Mirror Online I cannot stand it! Here's another true human interest story to come out of WWII and it's being handed over to Hollywood to fuck it over. The entire project ought to be done in Britain by people who have a certain inbred interest in historical fact. Squaddie Greasley was quite a man. I cannot imagine he would be impressed by the forthcoming treatment of his story. Bless the man.
