Image of item
Book

First edition.

"The incredible true story of fighter pilot Joe Moser's war in the sky and secret survival at Buchenwald during World War II. On August 13, 1944, Joe Moser set off on his 44th combat mission over occupied France. Soon, he would join almost 150 other Allied airmen as prisoners in Buchenwald, one of the most notorious and deadly of Nazi concentration camps. Tom Clavin's Lightning Down tells this largely untold and riveting true story. Moser was just 22 years old, a farmboy from Washington State who fell inlove with flying. During the war he realized his dream of piloting a P-38 Lightning, one of the most effective weapons the Army Air Corps had against the powerful German Luftwaffe. But on that hot August morning he had to bail out of his damaged, burningplane. Captured immediately, Moser's journey into hell began. Joe Moser and his courageous comrades from England, Canada, New Zealand, and elsewhere endured against impossible odds in the most horrific surroundings... until the day the orders are issued by Hitler himself to execute them. Only a most desperate plan might save them. The page-turning momentum of Lightning Down is like that of a thriller, but the stories of imprisoned and brutalized airmen are true and told in unforgettable detail, led by thedistinctly American voice of Joe Moser, who prays every day to be reunited with his family. Lightning Down is a can't-put-down inspiring saga of brave men confronting great evil and great odds against survival"--
