520 |a A pilot in the 352nd Fighter Group, the author of this memoir bailed out of his burning P-51 Mustang on D-Day+2 and was launched on a thrilling adventure on the ground in Occupied France. After months living and fighting with the French Resistance, Ted was captured by the Wehrmacht, interrogated as a spy, and interned in a POW camp and made a daring escape just before his deportation to Germany. Nothing diminished this pilot's talent for spotting the ironic humor in the most aggravating or dangerous situations, nor his penchant for extracting his own improvised and sometimes hilarious version of justice. A suspenseful WWII page-turner and outrageously witty tale of daring and friendship, this book brings to vivid life the daily bravery, mischief, and intrigues of fighter pilots, Resistance fighters, and other Allies in the air and on the ground. Ted Fahrenwald recorded his adventures at age 24, after his discharge and return to the States. Afterward he went into business and never again put pen to paper. But his immediate reminiscences of his wartime experience, recently found, reveal a rare literary talent. Fahrenwald's book brings to life daily intrigues of multiple sides of World War II.
