On September 13, 1944, a large, unknown airplane is crashing near to Koniówka in southern Poland. The ten crew members save themselves by using their parachutes, but some of them--all Americans--are soon captured by the Germans who approached the crash site; the others find themselves among people willing to hide them and help them escape the Nazi Germans. The local residents are also here and the event which, during the following few months, would be widely discussed, would ultimately then be forgotten for more than half a century. Tacit collusion and lack of interest in the crash of the American bomber, a B-17, became the subject which finally raised public attention in the beginning of the new millennium.

From the Author:

The circumstances described in this book took place in 1944 and were closely related to the places of my childhood. I was born twenty years later and for forty years of my life I have never been interested in this part of history at all. Of course, I knew, as all my peers, the place where the crash had happened and I can recall that some old aircraft items were hidden here and there in various houses. But I didn't care about the type of aircraft, its origin, crew members or the real reason of accident. Eventually, a few years ago some contradictory articles which dealt with the question of the B-17, 44-6412, Flying Fortress puzzled me so I decided for the first time to seek answers on the Internet and soon succeeded. My email inbox received more and more messages, which have been followed by many telephone calls and regular correspondence with America. Meanwhile, the Polish part of job had been taken over by my Mum.
My account isn't at first hand, but scanning all of the names on the book's pages the reader wants to find the men who directly affected the circumstances in 1944 and became, beside the historical and literally sources, my primary support in this work.
The second group of people, who contributed to the reconstruction of the last flight of 44-6412's crew, was related very closely to the aforementioned, and represented the families and close friends of airmen involved in the flight.
Very important sources to me were people who had remained around the place of the accident or their children, who had listened very carefully to the stories told by their parents.
Eventually, the last group of everyone, who helped me to procure wanted items of the airplane, everyone who joined me in my search for traces of crew and everyone who lent a hand advising me how to continue my work. All of them encouraged me to study the information about the Koniówka's Flying Fortress.
Most of my helpful informants, speakers of two different languages, unexpectedly showed huge interest in my work during our correspondence, so I decided to tell the story using both languages and honour their participation in my project bringing together the readers in the USA and Poland simultaneously in the events of the flight.

From the Back Cover:

13 września 1944 roku spokojną wioską na Podhalu wstrząsnęło zdarzenie, które w przeciągu następnych miesięcy było szeroko omawiane, lecz równie szybko zapomniane na ponad pięćdziesiąt kolejnych lat. Cicha zmowa i brak zainteresowania katastrofą Latającej Fortecy # 44-6412 w pobliżu Koniówki oraz dalsze dzieje załogi okazały się tematem, który doczekał się pierwszych reakcji dopiero na początku nowego milenium.
On September 13, 1944 the peaceful village in Podhale County was shocked by the event which, during the following few months, was to be widely discussed, but has been forgotten for more than half a century. Tacit collusion and lack of interest in the crash of Flying Fortress # 44-6412 near to Koniówka, as well as the further fate of the crew became the subject which finally raised public attention in the beginning of the new millennium
