Item Description...
A pilot of a B-17 describes how his plane was struck by enemy fire while returning from a bombing run over Germany, and how the crew was forced to parachute into Holland where the Nazis eventually captured him and sent him to a prisoner of war camp.

Publishers Description
An unforgettable autobiographical tale of survival during World War II. DeMaillie, pilot of a B-17, describes in riveting detail his successful bombing run from England to the industrial center of Germany. But things go very wrong on the return flight when his plane is struck by enemy fire and the crew is forced to parachute into Holland. Although a group of heroic Dutch resistance fighters try to hide him, the Nazis eventually capture DeMaillie and send him to a prisoner of war camp. There, he endures hunger, cold, and brutality until the Allies finally free him. Years later, he returns to Holland in search of his brave Dutch rescuers.

It Was Enjoyed By Dad  Jul 27, 2009
My father flew as a B-17 radio operator in the same outfit noted in this book. From his recent discussion with me, he said he recognized many of the names and places mentioned and had first hand knowledge of some of the events. He (and I )also said he was lucky to be alive, flying some 30 missions over Europe during WWII. He seemed to really enjoy reading this book that I gave him on father's day. Now if I can only get it back for a little while to read it myself...
Excellent book!  Jul 5, 2009
I bought this book for my 15yr old son, who loves anything to do with piloting, airplanes, and WWII. He has thoroughly enjoyed this book! I would certainly buy this if you're looking for a quality, easily read book.
An American Pilot in WWII Holland  Feb 26, 2008
This is a fascinating personal account of a U.S. Air Force pilot who took part in the B17 bombings of Germany in 1944 and was shot down over Holland and spent the rest of World War II in a POW camp in Germany. He wrote it specifically to honor the Dutch who took care of him at great peril to their own lives.

It was a particularly interesting read after being acquainted with Hilda Van Stockum's The Winged Watchman as locations and situations are very similar.

The narrative is simple and understated (and very REAL), but you can imagine the voice of a grandfather sharing his adventures and impressions with the young people of today. He wrote a sketch of his adventures in a notebook while he was a prisoner of war, but pieced them together for publication only in the last decade, after making some interesting reconnections with his past.

Violence and a few choice words make this most appropriate for seventh grade and up. It is a particularly fast read (extra-wide spacing also helps!) making it a good choice for older reluctant readers.
