SAS Great Escapes tells the story of seven of the most dramatic and daring escapes executed during WWII by what is arguably the world’s most famous military fighting force – the SAS.

With each story comes a nail-biting, rollercoaster ride in classic Damien Lewis style – readers join individual escapees and experience events through their own words, taken from contemporaneous diaries, mission reports, debriefings and letters – recapturing the most terrifying and exhilarating moments of their lives.

These tales of almost unbelievable derring-do reveal the most desperate of times, when men were cornered by the enemy and were forced to fight their way out of certain death or capture. Around every corner, upon every decision and every movement lurked the possibility of discovery.
