Military History – 4 stars

For those who read military history, this is an amazing story. A story of British generals and other high ranking officers, captured by the Africa Corps and becoming POWs of the Stalian army. During their captivity they developed several ingenious plans for escape, most of which failed. In their final attempt to escape through a shaft under the wall, six generals made it to freedom on 29 March 1943, four were captured and two made it to Switzerland. The British generals were extremely fortunate to be POWs of the Stalians rather than the Germans. This story would make a great movie.
