    Steve McQ's character is based on an OSS agent named Jerry Sage. Sage was captured behind the lines in North Africa and posed as a downed airman. He would have been shot as a spy if it hadn't worked. He has a very interesting biography. His story is in a book named after him "SAGE". It's a good read and gives a good account of life in the camp.
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    My dad's best friend was a POW in the camp where they used a wooden horse to dig the tunnel ,he was caught with another tunnel under his bunk and was in the cooler when the rest escaped.
