We arrived in Edinburgh to an article about Eric Liddell in The Herald, one of Scotland's largest dailies. The piece, titled Did Eric Liddell turn down freedom to help another prisoner-of-war?, tells how British Olympics officials were recently told by high-level officials in Weifang, where Liddell had been interned during WWII, that he turned down a chance at freedom. The Olympics officials didn't seem to have been given many details, but evidently Winston Churchill had arranged for Liddell to be set free in exchange for a high-level Japanese prisoner. Liddell, in characteristic self-sacrifice, asked that another inmate be released in his stead.
I've already worked it into Beyond the Chariots.
