[Sticky] The event outline
This event is Comrades in Arms' third WW2 event based on events here in the UK. This one is is based on the real "Welsh Great Escape" in which 70 German prisoners escaped via a tunnel from Hut 9 in a POW camp in Bridgend, South Wales, on the evening of 10th March 1945.
The event takes us to the morning of 11th March when the gravity of the escape becomes horribly real. For the moment the escape hasn't been made public but it won't be long before the news spreads like wildfire - so the race is on to contain the situation and round up the escapees. Port, road and rail authorities have been alerted and the hope is to keep the crisis local.
British - PoW camp guards from miscellaneous regiments and local Home Guard
German - officers of the SS, Heer, Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine
