Summary
Sixty years after the great escape, a team of archaeologists search the site of Stalag Luft III for new evidence of the clandestine operation, which involved 600 prisoners digging three highly sophisticated tunnels. In March 1944, after 11 months of digging, 76 POWs escaped from the German camp. All but 3 were recaptured, and 50 of them were killed in the ensuing brutal revenge. Recently, a team of battlefield archaeologists, armed with aerial photos and maps of the tunnel plans, unearthed one of the three tunnels that were dug by the POWs. Their intentions were not only to find proof of the incredible feat, but also to get inside the minds of the escapees. They were helped in this by historians and most of all by some of the men who lived through the daring escape
