Taken aback by Nathanael’s enthusiastic outburst, Captain Breth was speechless for several seconds. “Let me get this straight,” he said slowly. “You’re suggesting that the Wings of Service attempt to break into a Luftwaffe prisoner of war camp and fly two or three hundred unarmed men back to Allied territory?”
It was a daring idea. If they could succeed, it would mean liberty for many captured men. With limited time in which to secretly formulate their plan, an imaginative aviator, an indispensable agent, and an audacious ground soldier with a terror of heights prepare for a most unusual mission to rescue men imprisoned by the Nazis. But behind the scenes another rescuer is sorely needed, someone able to liberate one being held in grave captivity by a much stronger foe.
Here, in the central months of the Second World War, discover true freedom in this unique tale of a pilot, a prisoner, and a parachute.
