"War and captivity -- life and death -- fear and bravery. A remarkable true story of World War II that takes us along through the hell of aerial combat against high odds, and the harsh life of survivors in Nazi prison camps. A tale well told, it gives us insight into the courage and character of our gallant young airmen who paved the way for the invasion of Fortress Europe and our ultimate victory over Hitler's Germany."
-Major General Donald Ross, USAF (ret.)
"Once I started reading 'Down in Flames,' I couldn't put it down. It's well written and kept me turning the pages. Ray Parker was head writer on my daily CBS-TV show, 'House Party,' but he never talked about bombing missions over Germany during World War II and surviving a Nazi prison camp. What a surprise! I can certainly recommend this book."
