This week, Brian’s Pick is the “The Great Escape” by Ted Barris. The book “reveals that many of the escape’s key players…were all Canadian.” (from dust jacket). Mentioned in the book is F/L John H. Colwell, who is featured in our P.O.W. exhibit, as is his war diary, which contains detailed drawings of Stalag Luft 3, where he was kept prisoner.
A fascinating read with a Comox connection, “The Great Escape” is available in the Library.
