Synopsis:

Are you ready for some of the most exciting, death-defying escape stories ever told? The third installment in the unputdownable Great Escapes series is here—perfect for fans of the I Survived series!

Civil War, 1863. Virginia. Union soldiers Colonel Thomas Rose and Major A. G. Hamilton were captured by the Confederate Army and taken to Libby Prison—one of the most horrific prisons ever run.

Few ever made it out of the overcrowded, vermin-infested prison alive.

But neither fear, nor darkness, nor squealing rats could keep Rose and Hamilton from freedom. They and other POWs would fight against the odds to attempt the largest prison escape in American history.

From reluctant reader to total bookworm, each book in this page-turning series—featuring fascinating bonus content and captivating illustrations—will leave you excited for the next adventure!
