Synopsis

Colditz Castle in eastern Germany was the ultimate escape-proof prison of World War II, the place where the Nazi high command sent Allied prisoners whom they considered the most troublesome. Since many inmates had already escaped from other POW camps, this fortress of steep-sided battlements was formidably secure. Yet, from 1940 to 1945, more than 300 men escaped. British, French, Belgian, Dutch and some American prisoners -- united in their hatred of their captors -- shared secrets, tools and information in ever more daring breakouts from the prison.
