Wartime docu-drama starring John Mills, Eric Portman and Lionel Jeffries, re-telling the experiences of Allied prisoners-of-war who were held in Colditz Castle.

Despite being outnumbered by their guards, the prisoners of Colditz continued to achieve their goal - freedom.
The film inspired the 1972 TV series Colditz.
