The Cooler King
The True Story of William Ash – Spitfire Pilot, POW and WWII’s Greatest Escaper
The Cooler King tells the astonishing story of William Ash, an American flier, who after being shot down in his Spitfire over France in early 1942 spent the rest of the war striving to escape from every prisoner of war camp in which he was incarcerated. It is a saga full of high drama, climaxing in a break out via a tunnel dug in the latrines of the Oflag XXIB prison camp in Poland. Alongside William Ash is a cast of fascinating characters including Douglas Bader and Roger Bushell, who would go on to lead the Great Escape. Patrick Bishop vividly recreates the multiple escape attempts, while also analysing the passion that drove some prisoners to risk death in repeated bids for freedom.

Living in the Stationmaster’s cottage at Partick, Carrie Burgess leads a charmed life, cushioned from the world of poverty surrounding it. Her only real problem is her mother, who thinks Ewen Livingstone, the railway labourer Carrie’s in love with, a poor catch; Matt Campbell, a clerk, seems a much better prospect. Carrie’s father dies suddenly and his wife and daughter are forced to move out of their home. Money is tight. Carrie ignores her true feelings and marries Matt, only to find that his devoted front conceals a man of violence. When the Second World War starts, everything changes, but Carrie remains sure of one thing: that her heart will always belong to Ewen.
