Von Ryan's Express

New this month Question: Why didn't the prisoners just walk through the tunnel to Switzerland on the other side?

New this month Answer: The majority of prisoners were heading towards Switzerland through the tunnel, only a few prisoners with weapons were acting as a rear guard to hold off the German troops chasing them and buy the prisoners time to escape.
