Quick Overview

Like millions of other Europeans, Walter Logé was caught in the violent vortex of World War II. An ambulance driver in the German army, he was taken prisoner toward the end of the conflict and shipped by boxcar deep into Russia to the gloomy labor camp of Makeyevka.

Logé was a pleasant and gentle man, with an almost childlike faith in the goodness of God and in the innate decency of men. But he owned nerves of steel, lightning-fast wits, and an incredible determination to escape. He must somehow cover the many hundreds of miles across the reaches of the Ukraine and Poland westward to Berlin, where his beloved wife and three children awaited him – if they were still alive.

This is not just another war story, or merely another chapter in the long bitter story of man’s inhumanity to man. It is not simply another dreary chronicle of misery and brutality, nor was it written to remind us that war brings suffering to the innocent and arouses the worst of human passions.

Rather it is a document of human freedom and brotherhood. It is more than a book, it is an experience. To follow Walter Logé on his desperate, but at times humorous, flight from degradation and slavery is a heartwarming adventure of the human spirit.

The Seventh Escape

This is a great book. It is about a German man who worked for the German Red Cross during World War II named Walter Loge'. Walter was captured by the Russians and taken deep into Russia to a prison camp to work, and live under very poor conditions. Walter was a Christian and after 7 escapes he made it back to Berlin to his family in 1945. Walter was kind to all along his path and learned to play the balalaika, a Russian instrument. He shared whatever food he had with the Russians or whoever he was with. After being reunited with his wife and children in Berlin in 1945, 8 years later he immigrated to the United States with his family. They live in the Unites States today.
