    This is the true story of Second Lieutenant Leonard J Kovar and his battle to survive as a prisoner of war during World War II. During its eleventh mission, his plane was shot down and he parachuted out into a sky filled with fire, bullets and screaming German fighter planes. After landing behind enemy lines, Lt. Kovar struggled to avoid capture by enemy soldiers and civilians angry about the damage done by American bombs. This is a candid telling of his eventual capture and his incredible battle to survive life as a prisoner of war at the end of World War II: the mental and physical stamina he developed to face the various camps and death marches. He provides unique insight into interactions between POWs and German soldiers - an honest account of what it took to survive. It's a fresh look at a war that has faded into history but has not faded from people's minds.
