The Great Escape

This is really quite amazing. They've found the remains of one of the three escape tunnel dug for the real-life escape attempt the inspired the movie The Great Escape. There were three tunnels, Tom, Dick, and Harry; Tom was discovered by the Germans and collapsed, and Harry is the one they escaped through. Dick was abandoned before completion, and used to store supplies and dump sand from the other tunnels. No one ever found it...until now. Posted by Will Duquette at March 19, 2004 08:18 PM
