A 22-year-old daredevil pilot in the famed 352nd Fighter Group, Ted Fahrenwald bailed out of his burning P-51 Mustang two days after D-Day, parachuted into the farmlands of Normandy, and was picked up by the local Maquis, the guerrilla branch of the French Resistance. He spent the next few months carousing and raiding with these unruly outlaws, but eventually set out to rejoin his squadron. His luck ran out when he was captured by the Wehrmacht, interrogated as a spy, and interned as a POW—but made a daring escape just before being sent to Germany.
Written by Fahrenwald at age 24 after his discharge and return to the States, Bailout Over Normandy is at once a suspenseful page-turner and a rollicking tale of daring and camaraderie.
