I loved this book when I read it many years ago, and I possibly thought that Dick and Em were a romantic couple, but these days I’m not so sure. Their relationship was beautiful, but seeing as they both die in the end, I would class it more as a love story.

And, yes, they did die.

What do you guys think?

Rest in Peace, RAF Officer John Fancy, the man who inspired the movie The Great Escape.

Nicknamed the Mole by the comanders of the camps where he was kept prisoner for most of War World II, John Fancy spent over half a year total in solitary confinement during his five year captivity, as a result of his determination to escape.
