The Escape Artists: A Band of Daredevil Pilots and the Greatest Prison Break of the Great War
 

In The Escape Artists, New York Times best-selling author Neal Bascomb has unearthed a little-known and spellbinding story of the downed Allied airmen who masterminded the remarkable breakout from one of Germany’s most brutal World War I prison camps, the infamous Holzminden. Led by ace pilot David Gray, the prisoners plan a daring escape, one that will take them through 150-miles of enemy territory with nothing but their wits.
