    I guess everyone has seen The Great Escape at least once. This is about the real Great Escape--the inspiration for Steve McQueen's movie in the 60's, and later "Hogan's Heroes" as well.

    The tunnel allowed 76 Allied POWs to escape.

    This link takes you to an interactive map of the tunnel. Run your cursor over each number and it will tell you about it.
