The majority of us will never see the inside of a prison – thankfully. That said, more than a few men and women end up breaking the law severely enough to warrant a little time behind bars. For the most part, these convicted inmates use the time to think about what they did and count down the days until they get to be free again. In a handful of cases, the convicts don’t want to see out their sentences and begin hatching a plan to make a break for it. Many come to nothing, but every now and then an attempt works – or almost does. These such events always make the headlines because they are like something out of a Hollywood thriller. From prison camps in wartime to escapes from the most notorious facilities, take a look at these various stories of breakouts and see if you’d have the guts to try it.
