Ben MacIntyre - Colditz

Ben MacIntyre - Colditz

The incredible true story of the most infamous prison in history. In a forbidding Gothic castle on a hilltop in the heart of Nazi Germany, an unlikely band of British officers spent the Second World War plotting daring escapes from their Nazi captors. Or so the story of Colditz has gone, unchallenged for 70 years. But that tale contains only part of the truth. The astonishing inside story, revealed for the first time in this new book by bestselling historian Ben Macintyre, is a tale of the indomitable human spirit, as well as snobbery, class conflict, homosexuality, bullying, espionage, boredom, insanity and farce.

Deeply researched and full of incredible human stories, this is the definitive book on Colditz. Ben Macintyre is the multimillion-copy bestselling author of books including Agent Sonya, SAS: Rogue Heroes, The Spy and the Traitor, Agent Zigzag, Operation Mincemeat and A Spy Among Friends. He is a columnist and Associate Editor at The Times.
