In this exclusive talk Monty Halls, author of 'Escaping Hitler', reveals the story behind the filming of Channel 4's hit series 'WWII's Great Escapes - The Freedom Trails.' Monty and the film crew trekked through some of the most dramatic terrain in Europe, following in the footsteps of servicemen and women attempting to escape Nazi occupation. The escapees were helped along the way they were helped by local people - at huge risk to themselves - and the series also met and interviewed the civilians, partisans and resistance fighters who made the trails a reality. After the talk Monty will also be signing books of the series 'Escaping Hitler', which will be available to purchase on the evening. All proceeds from this event will go toward's Anna Bromley's cancer treatment fundraising page:
