Overview

Down Behind Enemy Lines:

B-17 waist gunner, Sergeant Peter Seniawesky was somewhere deep in Germany. Where he did not know. How many miles to the French border? He did not know. Even if he could miraculously reach France, what then? The entire country was occupied by Germans and French collab-orators.

He had no weapon and only a candy bar for food. He did not speak German or French and was dressed in an American aviator's uni-form. Escape was too grand a word. Peter was trying to survive -- to evade capture. He spotted a lone tree on the other side of the stream. If he could reach that tree without being seen and if the farmer with the shotgun and the German soldiers did not search past the stream...if he was really lucky. He eased down the bank, crossed the stream, climbed the other bank and began slowly crawling toward the tree. Although he could not know it at the time, Peter was beginning on of the most amazing escape adventures of World War Two.

It is a good book, it can make you rethink how brutal or nice the enemy was to the crew it tells first hand acouts like " i went to the store and nobody saw me " that's how the story is i recommend it i also recomend the adventure of the u-202 I'm 11 years old! ;)

Bought this book a few months ago for my Nook and just got around to reading it. Once I started I did not want to put it down. Tremendous reading. It was gut-wrenching at a couple of points at what soldiers went through. Would highly recommend this book. I live in CT and didn't realize that the author was living in CT when he wrote this and a few of the main focal points were also from CT. Definitely added to the enjoyment of the book.

This book was incredible. When I was 25 my bigest concern was what to wear when I went out on Saturday Night - not to be in charge of a bunch of men whose life depended on me.This book makes me think of that saying 'The home of the free because of the Brave'. And I think Mr. Ayres has done a fine job in showing us just that. I thank him for sharing these mens lives with us.
