Product Description

On April 10th, 1941 German Air Force officer Klaus Conrad was shot down in his plane over England and captured as a prisoner of war. After being taken to Canada in 1942, he made three escape attempts, with the third leading him and a comrade across the North American continent. This report recounts their exciting adventures, starting from a daring escape from the prison camp in broad daylight, through an idyllic life as trappers in the wild forests of Northwest Canada, a heart-stopping manhunt by military and police authorities, a nerve-racking trip in a sealed freight car and finally their sensational recapture. - Bilingual edition: German and English, aligned by sentence - It's an exciting adventure. with moments of quiet reflection. It's about longing for freedom, and working hard to obtain it. It's a story of individual courage, of friendship, and the selfless efforts of strangers who help along the way. It's about survival in the face of injury, cold, hunger, and thirst. - Contrary to the usual narrative, the author isn't escaping FROM the Germans, he is a German. His third escape takes him nearly 2,000 miles across Canada and into the US. Join Klaus Conrad on his journey.. Price: $11.66
