A searingly emotional and action-packed account of a WWII pilot's struggle to make it home through enemy territory. Henry Forester is a 19-year-old farm boy far from home. Having joined the American Air Force as a bomber pilot, his plane is shot down on a mission to Germany, leaving him alone, injured and terrified in a dangerous land. Relying on the kindness of strangers and the cunning of the French Resistance, he struggles from town to town, wary of imminent danger at every step. Desperately hoping to end his journey alive and free, he comes to feel a deep respect and affection for the freedom fighters who risk their lives for him.show more
