Greater Escapes & Rescues: An Encyclopedia
Hardcover (no d.j.)
Roger Howard (au). The daring escape of the fictional Count of Monte Cristo pales in comparison to the real-life exploits of POWs, persecuted clerics, political detainers, contenders for thrones, master spies, & even common criminals. In this informative encyclopedia, disguises, ruses, stratagems, capers, devices, rescues, & plots abound, from a papier-mâché POW substitute to Bonnie Prince Charlie’s successful 1746 masquerade as a maid, to a British airman’s short-lived escape from a German hospital wearing a nurse’s cap & cape. Each story is a tribute to humankind’s ingenuity, perseverance, courage, & indomitable will. The A-to-Z entries, many of them illustrated, suggest sources for pursing each subject further. Detailed bibliography.
