About this product
- DescriptionIn this entertaining and informative encyclopedia, disguises, ruses, stratagems, capers, devices, rescues, and plots abound. Topics range from a papier-mache POW substitute and Bonnie Prince Charlie's successful 1746 masquerade as a maid to a British airman's short-lived escape from a German hospital wearing a nurse's cap and cape-and ermous flying boots and a luxuriant mustache. Each story is a tribute to ingenuity, perseverance, courage, and indomitable will. The A-Z entries, many of them illustrated, suggest sources for pursuing each subject further.
