    Very interesting read Mike! It's amazing what all the POWs went through. I have bought a seires of books called "The Shoe Leather Express" published by a former Stalag Luft POW. It tells of the life inside the camp and on the "Death March" during the winter of 1944. And to think that these men were only in their 20's.

    Thanks again!
