“They Came from Burgundy” is a comprehensive resource for anyone interested in this fascinating chapter of WWII history. As my family's historian, I have been researching my own uncle's escape and evasion through France. The author's meticulous attention to detail provided important connections and incredible discoveries as I prepared and planned our family's memorial trip to retrace Bud Wilschke's route in 1943. Our pilgrimage would not have been possible without this book and the author's website, the "WWII Escape and Evasion Information Exchange.” Many thanks to Keith Janes for his dedication to the heroes of the Burgundy Line, and for sharing his passion and research with all of us.

I have been researching WW2 escape lines for almost twenty years, ever since discovering the diaries of my late father who was captured in June 1940 and escaped to cross the Pyrenees to Spain in September 1941. I run the escapelines.com website, and wrote the 2017 book, They came from Burgundy about the Bourgogne escape line. My second book, Express Delivery, tells the story of the Shelburn line, and is due to be published in the summer of 2019.
