Stamina beyond belief

I reviewed Escaping Hitler by Monty Halls many moons ago - see here . But I now have fresh admiration for those who made it over the Pyrenees. I flew over this mountain range recently, and even in June there was plenty of snow about. At 14,000 feet it was around zero. The hills rise incredibly steeply from the French side. How escaped prisoners in a poor physical state made over those mountains, I shall never quite understand.
