Escape from Behind Enemy Lines  

During WW II, an escape network operated in occupied France that returned down allied airmen to England. The network located the airmen and hid them from the Germans utilizing a series of safe-houses. Once a month – during dark of the moon – the men were transported to the Brittany coast and then to England. Rick will recount the story of how his father, an Army Air Force navigator, shot down over France, escaped Nazi capture. The escape story is told using letters, maps, photos, and the original fake identity cards.
