Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Prisoners of the Castle

“In retelling the story of Colditz, [Macintyre] makes it his own. [An] entertaining yet objectiveand often-moving account.”
Wall Street Journal
 
“Macintyre details the famous escapes, but, just as importantly, gives a vivid picture of everyday life in what became Germany’s most elite prison. Set aside a few hours for this book, since once you start reading, you will not stop until the last page.”
AirMail

“Riveting . . . This is another engrossing tale of WWII intrigue from a master of the genre.”
Publishers Weekly

“A mixture of derring-do and a vivid, warts-and-all portrayal of the iconic castle.”
Kirkus Reviews
 


Praise for Ben Macintyre


“John le Carré’s nonfiction counterpart.”
The New York Times

“Macintyre has a knack for finding the most fascinating story lines in history.”
—David Grann

“One of the most gifted espionage writers around.”
—Annie Jacobsen

“Macintyre is a supremely gifted storyteller. . . . His books are absurdly entertaining.”
The Boston Globe
