This is very cool...

The Tunnel that made The Great Escape possible


When graphics appear, move cursor over the number (no need to click) to display an explanation of activity.

Make sure you take the tour. It's really something to see. The last number to 'roll over' is 16. Be sure to look and read the numbers and click 'next' to move along.

In 1943 work had begun on 'Harry', the tunnel that allowed over 70 men to escape from the German POW camp, 'Stalag III', during World War II. This was the same tunnel made famous by the movie 'The Great Escape'. The URL below takes you to a site where one of the men, after the War, drew a diagram with explanations of each of the sections.

It's amazing how accurate the movie was, even though it couldn't possibly include all the information involved in this great engineering feat.

Hope you find this as interesting as I did.

Dude!

This belongs in Military News or Shooting the Breeze threads;
It has NOTHING to do with DOD or Military police.
