On August 13, 1944, Joe Moser set off in a P-38 Lightning for a combat mission over occupied France. Shot down, he joined almost 170 other Allied airmen as prisoners in Buchenwald, one of the most notorious and deadly of Nazi concentration camps. As the co-author of Lucky 666 and Valley Forge recounts here, Moser and his courageous comrades endured the most horrific conditions during their imprisonment. When Hitler himself gave the orders to execute the prisoners, only a desperate plan would save them. "Clavin's latest, like his other histories, reads like a novel…. An engaging and captivating story capturing the courage and strength of humanity under extreme conditions."—Library Journal (starred review)
