      A thrilling, brand-new historical fiction series based on real events—perfect for readers of the "I Survived" and "Horrible Histories" series! In this first book, Royal Canadian Air Force officer Bill Ash escapes from a German POW camp during World War II.

      In the spring of 1942, Royal Air Force pilot Bill Ash’s plane was surrounded and shot down by Germans. He was eventually brought to Stalag Luft III, a notorious camp for prisoners of war.

      The Germans boasted that the camp—which was isolated, heavily guarded, and surrounded by wire fences—was escape proof. But Ash was determined to prove them wrong. He, along with other POWs, would dig tunnels, hide in shower drains, or jump on trucks—all to gain freedom. Because resisting the Germans was their mission, and escaping was their duty.

      As civil war riled Sudan, young men —some orphans, some horribly injured, and some with terrible memories of suffering family members, hunger, and loved ones murdered —survived thousand-mile journeys. Once they became refugees, they were named the “Lost Boys” and soon the world would know their horrific tribulations. Using a mixture of anecdotes and data, this fascinating volume keeps readers intrigued even as it informs. Readers learn about the conflict that would eventually cause Sudan to become two countries with the north half dominated by Arab Muslims and the south populated by numerous ethnic groups. A map, reproductions, color photos, and sidebars break up the text. A time line, notes, glossary, reading list, website list, bibliography, and an index make this title useful for report writers.
