The One That Got Away

Franz von Werra was a Luftwaffe pilot shot down in the Battle of Britain. The One that Got Away tells the full and exciting story of his two daring escapes in England and his third and successful escape: a leap from the window of a prisoners' train in Canada. Enduring snow and frostbite, he crossed into the then neutral United States. Leasor's book is based on von Werra's own dictated account of his adventures and makes for a compelling read.
