#18: Escaping By Rolling Off the Back of a Track
It sounds like this Reddit user’s grandfather was quite the escape artist! From being taken to fight in WWII as a child soldier to becoming a chess master in a POW camp, this guy had some serious skills. And who could forget the dramatic escape by rolling off the back of a truck? It’s like something out of an action movie.
But the real kicker is when he tried to walk back home to Germany and got caught on the border, only to be put back in prison until he was 21! It’s a good thing he finally made it back home, or else his family might have thought he was lost at sea or something. This guy is a real survivor, and he’s got the war stories to prove it. Maybe he should write a memoir – I know I’d read it!
