Contents Introduction Gunther Pluschow: Escape from Donington Park M C Simmons: The Canadian Simmons Escapes Again Escape Number Three The Famous Holzminden Escape E H Jones and C W Hill: The Madmen’s Plan Frank Savicki: Doughboy on Tour 'He who runs the inside controls the outside.' (Mexican Mafia prison gang saying) At the end of the 19th century, following the Crimean and Austro-Prussian wars, the Hague Conventions were initiated by Tsar Nicholas II, so that politicians from all over the world could thrash out the legalities of war, particularly with reference to captured soldiers. Chapter two of the convention, which was eventually signed in 1907, states that: ‘Prisoners of war are in the power of the hostile Government, but not of the individuals or corps who capture them. They must be humanely treated. All their personal belongings, except arms, horses and military papers, remain their property.’ The principal countries that would go on to comprise both the Triple Entente (France, Russia and the United Kingdom), and the Triple Alliance (Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy) in World War I, signed this document, and so were bound by international law to abide by it. However, nobody expected the scale of World War I – a war so destructive and all encompassing that it would one day rank high among the deadliest conflicts of all time. It was a dark and desperate time, and in the event, the standards laid out in The Hague Convention might as well have been written on toilet paper for all the relevance it had to the realities of POW life.
