Don’s Great Escape is one man’s story of being in a German POW camp in WWII. Don’s plane went down over occupied France in 1943. He was captured and sent to Stalag Luft III made famous by the 1963 movie The Great Escape. On January 28, 1945, Stalag Luft III was evacuated so the camp would not be captured by the Russians. After several days of walking and being transported by boxcars, the prisoners eventually ended up in Stalag VIIA at Moosburg. Don was liberated on April 29, 1945. His story is told by letters written home to his parents.
The Greatest Generation
Great read. Informative for those of us who were fortunate enough to take advantage of the sacrifices patriots like Don made.
This country was truly blessed to have men like Don come before us so we could live that Life of Rielly he wrote his poem about.
Thank You Guys!!!!
