Description from the back cover of the Book:

What was it like to have your Liberator bomber shot down over Europe in World War II, to miss death by seconds as the aircraft falls to earth, and then to spend weeks eluding German soldiers while searching desperately for the Underground in Nazi-occupied France? Here is the true, firsthand story of Colonel Beirne Lay, Jr., co-author of the famous, novel, Twelve O'Clock High! Officially listed as missing in action and presumed dead, he lived to tell this exciting tale of adventure and escape!

Ordering information:

I believe the book is no longer in print. However, I found a used copy on Amazon.com and acquired it (cover of my copy is seen below). It is well worth reading!
