"Whether by accident or design, governments and agencies have remained silent, so all the research has been up to us. However this true fifty year old shame must be revealed in the hope that mankind remembers and never allows it to be repeated." - from Foreword. "Our story tells what happened to 168 Allied Airmen who jumped into Northern Europe after their planes had met with an explosive and fiery end. Because our eventual betrayal to the Gestapo was accomplished so smoothly, a number of these encounters will be explained so that you can better understand our dilemma. The retelling of our encounter with our Gestapo hosts is mild, for many of us do not wish to recall the most unpleasant details that deserve to stay well hidden in the back of our minds. Now with this story told, we again wish to forget." - from Prologue. Moderate wear. Unmarked. Binding intact. A sound copy. Seller Inventory # 665H0538
