Award-winning journalist Jack Fairweather reconstructs the remarkable, little-known story of Witold Pilecki, the Polish cavalry officer who spent nearly three years in Auschwitz clandestinely working to undermine the Germans and inform the Allies of Nazi crimes. Unimaginably, Pilecki was able to orchestrate his own arrest and incarceration in order to establish a resistance network against the Nazis.
