With bare hands and homemade tools, over 600 American and British P.O.W.’s in Nazi camps built numerous underground railroads, forged passports, drew maps, faked weapons, and tailored elaborate German uniforms and civilian clothes. Robert Whitfield reads this suspenseful dramatic story in a calm, thoughtful manner. His consistent pace and matter-of-fact delivery mimic the methodical struggle of the P.O.W.’s to regain their freedom and escape starvation. The timing, cadence, vocal quality, and even melody of Whitfield’s reading add to the suspense. Listeners will understand more fully the ordeal of a P.O.W. S.C.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 98]
