The Great Escape is a 1963 American film about an escape by Allied prisoners of war from a German POW camp during World War II on the night of the 24–25 March 1944. It is based on the book of the same name by Paul Brickhill, a non-fiction account of the mass escape from Stalag Luft III in Sagan (now Żagań, Poland), in the province of Lower Silesia, Nazi Germany.
The characters are based on real men, in some cases composites of several men.
