None of us really knows what went on in WW II serving our country unless you were there fighting. This is a true story of someone who not only served his country, but was shot down and was a POW. This book is a story of his missions, being shot down, his personal experience as a POW and what it was like. There are pictures, copies of telegrams, which makes the book even more interesting. I think it is wonderful that a person would take the time to tell his story. Thank you for fighting for my freedom.
