It's World War II and escape from army camps is a full time occupation. All the great escape artists somehow end up in a camp together and plan the biggest bust ever. Each character has a function - scrounger, forger etc. and, inspite of inevitable hiccups, all perform to impressive effect, each helping us along to the impressive finalé.
Familiar as grandad's tea time lectures it might be, but this World War II extravaganza always rewards the return.
