9780874222593: Not as Briefed: From the Doolittle Raid to a German Stalag

WSU art graduate Ross Greening painted and wrote a one-of-a-kind record of action in WWII. He piloted a B-25 in the Doolittle Raid, was shot down over Italy, escaped from a POW train, hid out in the mountains of northern Italy, and ended up in a German stalag. His remembrances, as well as his fine artwork illustrating the events of this era, make compelling reading.

About the Author:

After the war, Greening became a prominent spokesman for American prisoners of war by directing a national POW exposition tour. Remaining in the Air Force, he eventually became U.S. air attache to Australia and New Zealand. Greening recorded his experiences on reel-to-reel tapes and in written form, preserving a remarkably accurate telling of his WWII adventures.

Following heart surgery in 1957, Greening passed away due to a rare bacterial infection that he probably acquired during the war.

Review:

"Not as Briefed stands head and shoulders above the recent deluge of published World War II accounts."

Book Description Washington State University Press. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 265 pages. Dimensions: 10.5in. x 9.0in. x 0.7in.Washington State University art graduate Ross Greening was serving as a B-25 pilot in the Northwest at the outbreak of WWII. In 1942, he participated in the famous Doolittle bombing raid over Tokyo, which started a chain of events altering the course of the Pacific war. Greening designed the special bomb-sight used during the mission and later painted a one-of-a-kind record of the attack. Greening next was assigned to the North African theater. His luck ran out in July 1943 when Axis gunners shot his plane down over Italys erupting Mt. Vesuvius. After capture and then escaping during an Allied-bombing raid, Greening evaded recapture for more than six months in northern Italy. German soldiers who had been tipped off about Greenings hideaway in a high mountain cave eventually seized him and two companions. In a German stalag, Greening was one of the ranking Allied camp commanders. He continued to make an amazing pictorial record of the war--of his own experiences and those of dozens of other prisoners who related their accounts to him. Near the wars end, the Allied prisoners seized control of the camp before the Russian army overran it. Greenings invaluable watercolors, sketches, diary, and other items, a good portion of which had been hidden from the Germans, were safely brought out. In recent years, Greenings niece and widow compiled his memoirs. His sensitive observations on the cruelty and injustices of war are moving and deep-felt. His innate courage and resourcefulness were admirable, as were his astute assessment of the evils of fascism and the measures necessary to prevent threats to world peace. More than one Doolittle veteran has said, Ross Greening was the best one of us! This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
