Missing – A World War II Story of Love, Friendship, Courage – and Survival by Kenneth D. Evans
On Day 9 of the Battle of the Bulge, 2nd Lt. Donald N. Evans was shot down behind enemy lines. Defying the odds, he survived gailing out of his P-47 fighter plans seconds before it crashed. He limped and crawled through the snow-covered Ardennes Forest until after dark, trying to find a way back to the American front lines. Lost, cold, and hungry, Don spent Christmas Eve huddled under a pine tree, wondering if he would ever see his family again. Ahead lay capture by German SS Troops, a 200-mile forced march, near starvation, abuse by guards, and internment in a German POW camp. His will to overcome nearly insurmountable odds is inspiring. That he actually did so is a miracle.
Excerpts from deeply personal letters, journals, personal histories of 5 flyboys in the 368th Fighter Group of the Ninth Air Force along with mission reports and interview, create a moving and unforgettable World War II story.
