This is the story of the dramatic clandestine escape, in June of 1961, of sixty African students from Portugal across Spain and into France, with the assistance of the World Council of Churches and the French Protestant service agency CIMADE. The successful operation, which included false passports, night border crossings into Franco’s Spain, and escape from Portugese political police, makes for exciting reading.

This updated edition includes recollections of African heads of government who participated in the Great Escape. (Previously released as Escape from Portugal.)
