The Greater Escape

Fairness forces me to say that the escape from the Kandahar, Afghanistan jail by 470 Taliban fighters is a magnificent example of ingenuity and daring.

The escaping Taliban went out via a tunnel 1180 feet long. It was dug by Taliban from outside the jail, and not by the prisoners themselves, so it's not an exact duplicate of WWII escapes. Still, it's a pretty impressive achievement.

I'd embed the trailer from The Great Escape, but of course the idiot studio has embedding disabled. You've all seen it, anyway.
