Escape from England - Including the Escape from the Siege of Tsingtao Back to Europe

In either World War, only one German escaped from mainland Britain: Gunther Pluschow. "Escape From England" tells his story - and of his previous escape halfway round the world to get back to Europe.;But this book is special for more reasons than that: it gives a unique account of the siege of Tsingtao (Germany's Chinese enclave), describes possibly the first aerial combat of WW1 and finally tells of the British Home Front in 1915 (as seen through German eyes!).;In 1914, Pluschow was based in the German colony of Tsingtao in China (similar to Hong Kong).

Japan declared war on Germany in 1914 and besieged the colony. Pluschow flew reconnaissance missions until Tsingtao fell, when he escaped to China. He escaped from internment and caught a ship to San Francisco, travelled overland across the USA and caught another ship to Europe.;However, having succeeded in escaping halfway round the world, Pluschow's luck ran out.

The ship was stopped by the British at Gibraltar and Pluschow was captured again.
