Great Escapes of WW2 book recommendations
When I was a kid, my grampy used to talk about the war, since he was in the war as a soldier, worked the latrines and never made it past Private.

I became a Great Escape buff when I was a kid, but stayed only within the youth section, since it was PG-ified (yes, that's a word... now).

I was wondering, for those who read WW2 Great Escape books that are more detailed - and well, less PG-ified - if you could recommend me some of them.

Thanks!
