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.
