Abstract:

"Here, for the first time, is one of the most unbelievable stories of World War II -- the story of Room 900, London. This secret organization maintained a network of escape routes across occupied Europe for Allied prison camp escapees and downed airmen. The characters in this book, from all walks of life, were untied in a great human cause. Theirs is a chronicle of heroes and traitors; of hairbreadth escapes, betrayal, torture, death--and the indomitable courage that saved over 2000 British and over 3000 American soldiers and airmen."--Taken from book jacket.
