About

During World War II, the intrepid airmen of the Mighty Eighth Air Force of the USAAF took the war into the heart of Hitler’s Third Reich. In those terrible battles in the skies over occupied Europe, 50,000 of these airmen were shot down. More than half died and nearly half were captured. BUT, about 3,000 escaped death and evaded capture. These are the stories of the ones who got away.
