On a mission to bomb a French bridge and slow down Hitler’s army, U.S. bomber pilot Lt. Wendell B. Terry miraculously survived a harrowing parachute jump after his plane book a direct hit from enemy ground fire. Captured, Terry found himself in a German POW camp for Christmas. He shared an 18-by-24-foot cement room with 23 other prisoners of war. He lived with a dirt floor, no heat to ward off the bitter cold, one small window, and not much to do except use his artistic ability to document his life in the camp in a journal he received from the Red Cross. Those illustrations, created by Lt. Terry during his incarceration, are reproduced in this heartwarming true story of the joy of sharing what little you have even in the most dire of circumstances, beautifully retold by master storyteller Gerald N. Lund.
