Much more than just another war story, this
true, first person story grips the reader from beginning to end
with total realism. Those of the Greatest Generation can relate
to the author's childhood and teen years enjoying Scouting and sports
during the Great Depression years.
The authorís vivid memory and ability to write about his determination
to enlist and fly in the Army Air Corps is as if you were there with
him. His unique experience of evading capture by the Nazis for over
three months (only with the Slovaks invaluable help) after bailing out
of his shot-up B-24 over Slovakia December 11, 1944, would make an
excellent book alone. This is especially true because of the author's
awesome description of the Slovak Resistance and Partisans heroism and
sacrifices in protecting downed American fliers.
His eventual capture and harsh treatment by the Nazi Gestapo intensifies
his wartime experiences to a fever pitch, acutely testing his
courage---and his Faith.
Finally, the aftermath of his harrowing prisoner experience and finding
the Love of his Life will move and touch you.
