"Canadian aircrew forced down over enemy territory faced capture and a hopeless future in prisoner-of-war camps. Circumstance, blind luck, the 'Divine Helping Hand' and a fierce determination to remain free resulted in dangerous and thrilling escapades for evaders who were tested to the limits of their physical endurance and resourcefulness.
Their evasion and escape would not have been possible without the valiant patriots who risked their lives -and those of their families- to help these young men. Many patriots were shot in cold blood if suspected of aiding the Allies cause. Their operations and names -the Comet Line, the Shelburne Line, Joseph Heenan, Mlle. Fraipont, Margot Maroldt, Bernard and Mientje Manders, and Paula Blanchain, the gallant courier of the O'Leary Escape Line- will forever attenst to the unstinting self-sacrifice and heroism of everday people.
Read the remarkable stories of Greenburgh, the Patrick Boys, Lucky John Neal, John Dix, Ray DePape and many more who found themselves in enemy territory and against all odds lived to return- and fly and fight again."
(From jacket liner)
