Description: On 26 December 1960 Donal Donnelly made his dramatic escape from the prison known as ""Europe's Alcatraz"". Using hack-saw blades, torn sheets and electric cable, Donal broke out of Crumlin Road Prison, running the gauntlet of searchlights, alarms and machine-gun nests. Three years earlier, the teenage Donal had been convicted of membership in the IRA during the first year of ""Operation Harvest"", and was sentenced to ten years. This is the story of how he overcame many hurdles to live a successful, happy life. ""A readable writing style and a rousing description of Donnelly's escape from prison. . . . An action-packed saga.""-Library Journal
