*Young and old alike will be held breathless as they too anxiously await the rescue of 500 downed airmen who are hidden in the mountains of Yugoslavia amoung peasant villages, while the occupying Germans are coming closer and closer. Through these stories the reader will experience the constant hunger of the airmen, the devastation, the happiness, the sorrow, and the immense fear. Your legs and feet will ache as you read of their seemingly pointless marches, from village to village .... and you will likely shed tears as the nearly-impossible rescue begins.
*You will be breathless, unable to wait to see what happens next !
*This book is a compilation of the personal stories of a few of those downed airmen ...stories which have remained unheard by much of the world for far too long.
*Charlotte Mason long ago said that history is best learned not with textbooks but rather through the personal stories of those who "lived" the story. She called books like this one, "Living Books".
