Overview

When 17-year-old Richard Moulton joined the Army Air Corps in 1943, he little dreamed of the yearlong, life-and-death drama he would endure. Shot down over Slovakia, he was imprisoned, released and finally hidden in a cave with six other Americans. Recaptured by the Germans, subjected to torture by the Gestapo, who claimed he was a Russian spy, he was finally liberated by General Patton's 3rd Army.

The story of Moulton's return to Slovakia more than a half-century later is a touching tribute to the hospitality, kindness and courage of the many Slovakians who fed him and hid him from the Nazis, always at the risk of their own lives.
