The Cooler King is about an RAF pilot, William Ash, who became a POW and a complete PITA to the Germans. He is one of the many who have been linked to the character of Hiltz in the film "The Great Escape" but Ash certainly comes closest to that description.

Patrick Bishop has written an enthralling book about Ash and his exploits and we have three copies of this book to give away as prizes. To enter go to the SurveyMonkey page at : Entry Form

The competition will run until Sunday 13th September.

The review of the book by Cynical can be found here:

The winners are:

@Zhopa @hairyarse2 @Miner


The answers are:

Q1 Ash was born in Texas USA.

Q2. Ash's first job after university was Lift Operator. he went to Uni in USA prior to the war and Uni in UKL after the war. His first job after uni therefore was lift operator in USA.

Q3. Now the question that got many of you exercised and, it appears, confused. The question is quite straightforward in what country was the Camp - the Camp was in Germany. This area is now part of Poland and has been since the war ended, but it is the site of the camp, it is no longer a camp. So the answer I accepted was GERMANY, the country the camp was in when Ash was a PoW.
