Two years after the United States entered the Second World War, 21 year old college student James D. Pascoe was drafted into the U. S. Army Air Force. The California native trained as a tail gunner, and was assigned to a B-26 Marauder. On his 11th mission, the young airman was shot down over the French countryside. Passed by local families to the Résistance, Pascoe spent weeks on the run. Betrayed, he was captured and imprisoned by the Germans. This memoir, based on the daily journal he kept through the war, tells the story of an ordinary American - from civilian to POW and back again.
