"David Mundell has reconstructed his father, Robert Mundell's, experience in World War II as a radio operator in the 8th Army Air Force. Robert talks about his B-24 that was shot down over Italy, his capture, his escape, and how he eluded capture a second time to survive his tour of duty. A heartwarming tribute by a son to his father." - Paul Rechnitzer, lieutenant colonel, U.S. Army (retired), World War II veteran, historian and author.
Prologue: "This account of my father's experiences during World War II begins on December 7, 1941, and ends with his discharge from the Army October 31, 1945. It is based on his recollections, declassified military records, and various books about the B-24 bomber and the Eighth Army Air Force. Most of the military records were obtained from the National Archives at Suitland, Maryland, and from Will Lundy, historian of the 44th Heritage Memorial Group."
