The True Story of a German-Jewish RAF Pilot who Bombed Berlin and Became a POW

Book Description:

This is the unforgettable biography of the only German Jew known to have piloted bombers in the RAF, to have bombed his homeland (including his hometown, Hannover), to have been shot down and taken prisoner by his own people after 22 combat missions, and to have become one of the most ardent POW escapers of the war. He committed identity theft in order to enlist, because the RAF would not accept citizens of Germany (who had no protection from the Geneva Convention). He was awarded the Military Cross in 1946 for all of his escape activities, and he is mentioned in at least 10 books about escapes, however nobody has ever told his whole story, until now...

This book is scheduled for release in October, 2009.
