It’s 1941. Europe lies at the mercy of the victorious Nazi war machine. For some in the British army the war is already over. Or is it? Lance Corporal Jock Mitchell has paid the price for being a territorial soldier in the Royal West Kent Regiment. His battalion, ill-equipped and untrained, found itself sacrificed in France against the all-conquering Wehrmacht, trying to hold the line while the bulk of the British army retreated to Dunkirk to fight another day. A prisoner of war camp awaits Jock for the remainder of the conflict, far from home and his loved ones, under the watchful eye of a brutal regime. Food is scarce, the work hard, the news grim, the future appearing hopeless. But what if the prisoners could still contribute to the war effort? What if they could land a blow against Hitler? When an opportunity arises, Jock reluctantly finds himself at the heart of the plan. Failure means certain death, but all will be fine if his alibi holds. However, that means escaping from Stalag XXA and then breaking back in!
