Looks like a fascinating read. Hardback copy is £18.00 at Amazon. The blurb reads:

Product Description
The product of a lifetime’s reflection, The Last Escaper is Peter Tunstall’s unforgettable memoir of his days in the RAF and as one of the most celebrated of all British POWs. Tunstall was an infamous tormentor of his German captors dubbed the ‘cooler king’ (on account of his long spells in ‘solitary’), but also a highly skilled pilot, loyal friend and trusted colleague.

Without false pride or bitterness, Tunstall recounts the high jinks of training to be a pilot, terrifying bombing raids in his Hampden and of elaborate escape attempts at once hilarious and deadly serious – all part of a poignant and human war story superbly told by a natural raconteur.

The Last Escaper is a charming and hugely informative last testament written by ‘the last man standing’ from the Colditz generation who risked their lives in the Second World War. It will take its place as one of the classic first-hand accounts of that momentous conflict.
About the Author
Peter Tunstall joined the RAF in 1937 and flew numerous combat missions before his capture off the Dutch coast. After spells in several German POW camps including Spangenberg Castle, and many audacious and imaginative escape attempts, he arrived in Colditz where he was imprisoned alongside other celebrated POW legends including Douglas Bader, Pat Reid and Airey Neave. In 1945 he returned to Britain, subsequently working as an actor and in civil aviation. He has only recently died aged 95. This is the first and only book in which his unique and compelling story is told.
