    E–book [Under the Wire] SUMMARY Ð 3SW.CO ✓ William Ash REVIEW Under the Wire World War II has always been one of my favorite reading topics probably because I was born just a few months after the war ended I've read hundreds of books about the war and some of the most compelling stories were about Allied POW experiences Books like Free as a Running Fox and The Colditz Story showed just how determined many POWs were to escape When co author Brendan Foley offered me a review copy of Un

REVIEW Under the Wire

REVIEW ↠ Under the Wire SUMMARY Ð 3SW.CO ✓ William Ash REVIEW Under the Wire An enthralling memoir of WWII adventure fighter pilot fugitive in Paris Gestapo prisoner and ultimately a great escape artist Bill Ashs story is unforgettable From the lean days of Depression era Texas to the thrill of being one of the few who flew Spitfires from a death defying crash landing in Occupied France. I approached this book as a courtesy to the author whose service in World War II deserved in my opinion some attention What a marvelous surprise and delight to find it an entirely engrossing well told story of several slices of American History some of which are not often told While the main story chronicles Bill Ash s experience flying Spitfire fighter planes for the RAF his day of reckoning when he was shot down and his remarkable experiences hiding from the Nazis in occupied Europe and then after captivity his numerous escape attempts other aspects of the story were very interesting too He grew up in Depression era Texas with a spirit of wanderlust and adventure As a youth he joined the transient hobo community hopping trains and learning to survive with uick wits creativity and courage Little did he know how well this would prepare him for his experience as an escape artist from Nazi prisonsUnlike many WWII books that recount the horrors of prison camp and the brutality of the enemy Ash and his co author Brendan Foley have opted for an emphasis on the spirit and resourcefulness of Ash and his fellow prisoners and their ability to find humor even in the midst of their terrible situation The author s observations about the changing behavior of the Germans as the war got closer to the end was also very interesting The voice of this book was genuine and honest Brendan Foley has undoubtedly worked wonders with his journalism skills and his excellent telling of Bill Ash s story This is a remarkable fascinating book that shines a spotlight on that small rare breed of soldiers who were willing to take extraordinary risks for the sake of freedom I hope they make this into a movie and I d go so far to suggest it is a must read for anyone interested in WWII real life stories Chancey of the Maury River lean days of Depression era Texas to the thrill of being one of the few who flew Spitfires from a death defying crash Flora of Maine A Manual for Identification of Native and Naturalized Plants of Maine Vascular landing in Occupied France.
