The Stalag Luft III was a prison camp on Germany's border with Poland. It held 10,000 Allied airmen of all nationalities during the Second World War, and was escape proof. But for Allied prisoners of war, it was their duty to escape. This documentary tells the story of the brave and resourceful men who organised the historic Great Escape and paid a tragic price for carrying out their duty.
A truly outstanding documentary on the events of The escape from Stalag III in Sagan on the night of March 24th 1944. The documentary goes into great detail with what happened to the 50 men executed by the Nazi's and the post war hunt to track down all those responsible. Using great interviews with POW's from the camp the families of the men who lost their lives in the escape, tells a most emotional tale of what happened to the 50 ! As the previous posted noted, you find this outstanding documentary on the newly released two disc issue of the 1963 movie, "The Great Escape" in DVD! Also along with this, The History Channels version of History vs Hollywood" The Great Escape..another great documentary of how the makers of the 1963 classic made the film , while trying to preserve the original story. Both simply outstanding & a real salute to the men who gave their all in this story from WWII...very moving !
