The Prisoner of War Great Escapes

We can provide a 45 minute talk featuring the experiences of Allied (and Axis) escapers throughout the wartime period.

Each talk combines a presentation of surprising, ingenious and sometimes hilarious escape stories along with hands on examples of the items created within the camps.

This talk and demonstration will cover a multitude of points regarding the prisoner, all having been researched from the testimonies of veteran POWs. Examples of these are below:

  • How the Reich accidentally financed the first Home Run
  • The Truth Behind the Great Escape
  • The German Great Escape
  • What's so important about a Monopoly set?
  • What was MI9?

Following the talk the group will take questions and queries.

Foreign Field can provide in-depth detailed talks and demonstrations on the history of men and women in conflict, throughout the ages in both military and civillian settings.

Costumed talks and demonstrations can be done more than once per day and are ideal for school visits and small museums or as individual displays in shows..
