In fact, the only bond he shares with his eccentric father is a passion for archaeological excavation. So when Dad mysteriously vanishes, Will is compelled to dig up the truth behind his disappearance. He unearths the unbelievable: a secret subterranean society.

Author's note: Lt. Cmdr J. Chrisp's memoir, "The Tunnellers of Sandborstal", was very helpful in writing this chapter, both for general information on life in a POW camp, and for an understanding of the technicalities of digging an escape tunnel. Sandstone, on the other extreme, formed into a sedimentary rock and can store a lot of water (or oil). The sand needs to start with some quartz and needs compression. You can tunnel in sandstone fairly easily, though you cannot have really have spans without support over about 7 meters. (See your favorite book on Mining or Ground Engineering).
