How did the British government find out?[edit]

The timeline is rather jumbled - needs rearranging and the point at which the government knew things made far clearer, by someone who knows... (talk) 21:49, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Neutral investigation[edit]

Was there any neutral investigation in those events. Or do we have to rely on biased sources? I see no reason to believe the general "murder" claim as several of the escapees were not killed, when recaptured, but actually even escaped again and returned again. -- (talk) 16:47, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

divers(e) places[edit]

The table in the "Trials" section has a "Charge 1" and "Charge 2" that uses language such as

Charge 1: Committing a war crime in that you at divers(e) places in Germany and German occupied territory between[...]

The language of the charge is not cited inline; I would be curious to know if anyone has it, and whether it says "divers", "diverse", or whether (this seems very unlikely) it genuinely says "divers(e)".

My hypothesis is that it probably says "divers", and someone has added the parenthetical "e" as a help to those who do not know the word. If that is so, then the "e" should be removed, both because it wasn't there originally, and because divers and diverse are not in fact exact synonyms, and "diverse places" does not make much sense in context. (The difference is that divers just means "several, various", whereas diverse means that they are somehow different in character among them.) --Trovatore (talk) 08:34, 29 May 2012 (UTC)


...did Hitler give the order, when he never concerned himself with such unimportant matters as escaping PoWs at any other time? (talk) 00:01, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Are you joking? Read the transcripts from his military conferences. Hitler was the biggest micromanager in history. (talk) 00:54, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

After the Battle this month has an article on Roger Bushell's murder that may be of interest to editors. (talk) 00:54, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Duplicate list[edit]

Isn't the list here the same as the one at List of Allied airmen from the Great Escape? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 04:52, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
