From Amazon.co.uk:
In Colditz: The Full Story, Major Pat Reid brings together the many dramatic discoveries resulting from researh that has covered the five continents. From all walks of life, Belgian, Czech, Dutch, French, German and Polish prisoners - as well as those from the British Commonwealth and USA - were incarcerated in suffocating intimacy for five years in an alien and hostile land. Under these conditions, they proved that men could live together and that loyalty and generosity could thrive, transcending the natural prejudices of race, creed, language and intellecual diversity.

There were more than 300 escape attempts at Colditz and in this fascinating portrayal, Reid vividly describes this unique period in Second World War history. Furthermore, he reveals the code systems between the War Ofiice and Colditz; shows how he obtained information on Germany's secret weapons; and investigates the existence of traitors and the situation of non-collaborators in the castle.

This is a true story, which nonetheless possesses the mythical qualities that cause a legend to live forever.
