I have in the past read the 'Colditz story,' and more have recently 'under the wire' by William Ash and 'Moonless Night' By BA 'Jimmy' James, two RAF chaps who did a fair amount of escape attempts during WW2. And of course I have like most old farts of my age seen the films over the years. like 'Albert RN' 'The Wooden Horse' and of course the legendary christmas TV special 'The great Escape (of which Jimmy James took part) and the story of the only Boxhead to escape Franz von Werra in 'The one that got away' Now I know a fair few British, Dutch, Polish, Norwegian and French (as well as other nationalities ) POW's escaped from German POW camps but does anyone know if any US prisoners did? I know William Ash was born an American as was John Dodge (an absolutely remarkable fella by all accounts!) but both were naturalised Brits and both were serving in the British Military at the time of their escape attampts, but did our Yank cousins actually do any escapes successfull or not? I do know US troops did escape from japanese POW camps..well I know 4 did...but have never seen anything relating to German camps.
