I’m happy to announce that new book due to be published in the USA and UK in late 2016. This will be real treat for all families of the former POWs of Oflag 64 and Oflag XXI-B to read it. Currently I’m enjoying reviewing a draft of this upcoming book by Stephen Dando-Collins. The book's title will be “The Schubin Breaks”, because it chronicles a series of escapes and escape attempts. It focuses on American POWs, as well as mentions about the brave people of Altburgund who used to help to POWs to make these escapes possible. The book begins with the RAF tunnel escape and Bryks ‘honey wagon’ escape from Oflag XXI-B, then follows the various American escapes and escape attempts from Oflag 64. In the second half of the book, the story moves away from Szubin, as it follows the fates of men who were imprisoned here, east to the Russians, and west and south to Luckenwalde, #Hammelburg and #Moosburg. I had a pleasure to work closely with Stephen on the local research in Szubin. Stay tuned for more news about it.
