How can an unlikely band of brothers escape hell when there's a traitor in their midst?
Colditz has become an almost mythic symbol of perseverance, resourcefulness, and strength. The prisoners of war who managed to escape the clutches of the Nazis there have been assigned almost to legend. But this explosive new look at Colditz reveals, for the first time ever, the betrayal, espionage, and backstabbing within the ranks. How these men, surrounded by enemies, couldn't even afford to trust each other. And how the Traitor of Colditz almost led them to their deaths.
Drawing on unseen National Archives records, The Traitor of Colditz spans from Auschwitz to the nightclubs of Berlin in a true, epic, spy thriller across World War Two Europe.
