Inducted into the U.S. Army in 1942, Louis Guenther requested assignment to the U.S. Army Air Forces, where he was trained as an engineer and top turret gunner for the B-17 heavy bomber. Assigned to the 447th Heavy Bombardment Group in England, he completed several missions before his plane was shot down over Germany. For the remaining fifteen months of the war, he was a POW in Germany and endured a forced march during bitter winter weather as the end of the war approached. Originally self-published in 1985, this is the story of one soldier's experiences, an intensely personal story of patriotism, faith, and survival.
