THE GREAT DESERT ESCAPE
Brings to light a little-known escape by 25 determined German sailors from an American prisoner of war camp in 1944. At the camp at Papago Park, just outside of Phoenix, the disciplined Germans tunneled unnoticed through rock-hard soil and crossed the unforgiving Arizona desert heading for Mexico, and sympathizers who would get them back to the Fatherland. 16 pages of photos.
