SAGAN (Stalag Luft III), 24-25 MARCH 1944 & BEYOND

2019 marks the 75th anniversary of this WW2 POW escape ‘event’.
This post will be in place for the next few days !
The mass escape of airmen from Stalag Luft III in March 1944 is now long enough passed to be a life time away, yet 'young historians', are aware of this 'great escape'; the information they have on it, passed on in the main by the famous 1963 MGM film of this name.
The reality of the escape a few days on from the night of 24 - 25 March 1944 was to have 'profound', far reaching consequences for 50 recaptured (of the 73) P.O.W. Allied Airmen; their families and comrades.
Please do read all 50 names and take a moment........!
