About the Book
The Second World War was a time of sacrifice and valor, when our country sent brave soldiers into battle against one of the most formidable armies known to man. It was the first global conflict where air supremacy was paramount and no one was safe from the rockets and bombs that often hit well behind the front lines. While General Eisenhower and his staff were developing strategies to hit the Nazi capital of Berlin and industrial centers throughout Europe, the young men flying the huge B-17s high in the air were coming to grips with the realities of this new type of warfare.

Vermont native Donald Malloy was used to the snow-peaked cliffs of Mt. Mansfield and the harsh winter winds that blew in from Lake Champlain but the freezing and perilous conditions his crew often flew under would test his fortitude and resolve. Soon Don and his ten-man crew were sent into some of the most dangerous missions in the 8th Air Force, including the first air raid over Berlin and the long eleven hour strike over Poznan, Poland. After his plane was shot down behind enemy lines, Don must use all of his skills to escape numerous POW camps and make it home over the mountains.
