Under the wire the wartime memoir of a Spitfire pilot, legendary escape artist and 'cooler king'
They were years of extraordinary hardship, frustration and brutality - the penalty for escaping was a long spell in solitary - but throughout it all Bill Ash displayed not just remarkable courage but also an anarchic sense of humour, great humanity and an unstoppable desire for freedom.
