Overview

"I could see that still no one had been able to get out from the cockpit. It must have been at this moment that I thought I was going to die because I became remarkably calm." Trapped inside a burning Lancaster bomber 20,000 feet above Berlin, airman John Martin consigned himself to his fate and turned his thoughts to his fiancée back home. In a miraculous turn of events, however, the twenty-one year old was thrown clear of his disintegrating aeroplane and found himself parachuting into the heart of Nazi Germany. He was captured and began his period as a prisoner of war. This is the engaging and compulsively readable true-life account of a Second World War airman, who cheated death in the sky only to face interrogation and the prospect of being shot by the Gestapo, before having to endure months of hardship as a prisoner of war.
