A better-than-average POW camp escape memoir that's notable for the protagonist's ability to anticipate the actions and motivations of his captors. The work's main drawback is James' decision to write for a young male audience; I get the sense he had a longer story in him. James' story also falls in the British tradition of the aristocratic young officer who travels in disguise in a hostile country (such as Eldred Pottinger or Richard Burton). ( )
