'Pearson's biography of Roger Bushell is as gripping as it is informative and wonderful.'
'This gripping biography... Pearson has done uncommonly well in this, his first book, to unearth so much.'
'The Great Escaper is a compelling narrative, one which paints a convincing picture of a true war hero.'
'Told with wonderful relish by Simon Pearson, who has undoubtedly produced the definitive biography of Bushell.'
What a read. Pearson's research is absolutely on the ball and the book is so descriptive I felt as if I were actually flying a Spitfire in 1940...The whole book was fascinating, I could not put it down. Rare you to read it - you will not fail to be moved.
