A personal account of the WWII experiences. Assault on Avignon documents the World War Two experiences of Gene Carman, a B-25 navigator/bombardier. He and his crew flew many missions over Italy and France, dodging anti-aircraft fire on nearly every trip from their base in Corsica. On August 8, 1944, the odds finally caught up with them and they were shot down over occupied southern France, and then captured by the Germans after being on the run for three days. In Assault on Avignon, you'll read About: -How men were chosen for aviation training over other troops. -What specialized training these men received before going overseas. -About the miracle that was the Norden bombsight. -About the camaraderie and cohesiveness of a flight crew. -What goes through an airman’s mind as ground fire hits his plane. -The terror of being shot down and captured in enemy territory. -What it was like to be a prisoner of war.
