BOOK OVERVIEW – Coffin Corner Boys
As a young band of brothers flies over German-occupied France, they come under heavy fire. Their B-17 is shot down and the airmen―stumbling through fields and villages―scatter across Europe. Some struggled to flee for safety. Others were captured immediately and imprisoned. Now, for the first time, their incredible story of grit, survival, and reunion is told.
Bill Frederick, former Mayor of Orlando, says:
“…readers will catch a glimpse into first-hand accounts of what very young men did in serving our country at a time when the world was at war – and how brave people abroad responded to their mission. You will be inspired and engrossed at every turn of the page of this remarkable book.”
