Dashing through the snow

Thousand Islands Life online magazine has just published an article I wrote telling the story of a little known prisoner of war escape attempt across the ice of the frozen St Lawrence River in 1942. I corresponded with the escapee, Luftwaffe pilot Ulrich Steinhilper years ago, when I was researching Evasive Action. He has since passed away, but he was very gracious and patient with my questions about life in a Canadian POW camp and his escape attempts.

Here is the article: When the road to Germany ran through the Thousand Islands.
