Also Today...


... is the 67th anniversary of the Great Escape. So after you finish reading a bit of Tolkien, go ahead and watch The Great Escape, with Steve McQueen. Better yet, you might consider reading "The Great Escape from Stalag Luft III" by Tim Carroll.

Aye, isn't it? Germany was having an unusually severe winter, and there were a couple feet of snow about, so it was really a very daunting undertaking.

Technically, though, the escape itself began before midnight, on March 24th, so the 25th is when the prisoners were actually out and about.
