Reader's note

Add some stripes to your bookshelf with this fabulous first edition of The Wooden Horse by Eric Williams, published in 1949! This is the story of the most daring and ingenious escape of the whole war, with the irresistible appeal common to all truly great stories of human adventure and endurance. The Wooden Horse escape has up to now been only a legend among fellow prisoners-of-war; here the story is told for the first time. It was a 'classic' escape, perhaps because it was conceived on classic lines. The Greeks made a wooden horse and by means of it entered the city of Troy; in 1943 two British officers made a wooden horse and by means of it escaped form a German prison camp; together with a third companion, they were the only British officers ever to escape successfully and to reach England from this camp, though many tried.
