The Colditz Story [with] The Latter Days

REID, Patrick R.

COLDITZ COMPLETE IN FULL MOROCCO WITH THEME TOOLING

Published: Hodder & Stoughton, [1952-53]

Stock code: 19972

Price: £720.00

The first volume culminates with the author's 'home run' in 1942. Reid's two classics of POW life and escape began a virtual sub-industry (of astonishingly variable quality) including dozens of later books, several feature films, countless magazine pieces and a long-running TV series. There is, however, no mistaking the calibre of the original. Now that Colditz is to become (in part at least) a youth hostel, interest in its wartime role will only grow. Enser, p. 151.
