Arguably the model for the Steve McQueen character in The Great Escape. By age 21 Ken had already trained to be a pilot officer; flown 56 hair-raising bomber missions by night over Germany; taken part in the siege of Malta; got married; been shot down into a remote Norwegian lake; been captured and interrogated; sent to Stalag Luft III, survived the Great Escape and the forced March to Bremen. Truly a real-life adventure story, written with accuracy, pace and drama.
'In an age obsessed with C-list television celebrities battling it out on phoney "reality" survival shows, Rees and his dwindling band of Great Escapers stand out as the real thing.' - The Daily Telegraph
'Written in frank, warm and readable style, this is a very engaging account of a remarkable life.' - New History
'A brave man's memory. Hear the fear yet take succour from the courage.' - North Wales Chronicle
