Summary
  • Aircraft Down! recounts six extraordinary evasion adventures that took place in Holland, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Albania, and Greece during World War II. In 1944 alone, nearly 30,000 American airmen survived bailing out of or crash landing their aircraft in Europe. The great majority were captured immediately. A few lucky ones beat tremendous odds and managed to evade their Fascist pursuers
  • These thrilling stories are told by an authority on pilot survival, escape, and evasion. Noted aviation author and retired Air Force pilot Philip D. Caine based his work on official USAAF after-action reports and on extensive interviews with the airmen and some of the courageous Europeans who helped them at the risk of their own lives. In several cases, he retraced the actual evasion routes himself, and he has provided maps and photos that enable the reader to follow the downed airmen's actual footsteps
