From the cover: “Everyone knows Eric Williams’s famous account of the escape of three English officers from Stalag-Luft III by means of The Wooden Horse. Now, in The Tunnel, he draws a more detailed picture of imprisonment than was possible in the earlier book, which was essentially an adventure story told almost at “thriller” pitch. He describes vividly the events preceding that amazing escape; Peter Howard’s parachute descent, attempted evasion and capture, his meeting with John Clinton and the early days of captivity in Oflag XXIB, their plans to escape, their first tunnel and the bitter disappointment of failure.”
