WORLD War Two prisoners at Colditz Castle regularly enjoyed strip shows from local women, a book says.

Some also sunbathed in view of the castle to give men something else to smile about.
Author and historian Ben Macintyre reveals in his book Colditz: Prisoners of the Castle that women “obligingly” and “knowingly” set pulses racing by stripping.

But some British POWs supposedly put together a makeshift telescope to get a better view.
Macintyre added: “One frustrated inventor came up with the ‘lecherscope’, a homemade telescope that could be used to ogle women.”

The subject of a BBC drama series in the 1970s, Colditz in Saxony, Germany, was one of the most famous POW camps in World War Two.
It housed POWs who had a record of escape attempts from other camps because the Germans — mistakenly — thought it was escape-proof.
