Overview

Young and in love and heading off to war with pilot's wings and heroes dreams, then shot down and on the run for 78 days in the mountains north of Florence - from cockpit to caveman, from hunter to hunted - until three noble and brave Italian men and their families provide food and friendship - a real sense of home until American troops arrive.

Get to know the pilot and his wife through his letters home from training, from the journey overseas, and from the base on Corsica. Listen to his wartime tale of terror and joy - as told to his son in his final months, as he was dying.

Learn about Catch-23, this pilot's rebuttal to the ealier book which mocked and satirized the service of those who were stationed on Corsica and flew B-25's over Italy and France.

It's a story you won't soon forget!
