The Lost Airman: A True Story of Escape From Nazi-Occupied France : Bronx-born top-turret gunner Arthur Meyerowitz was one of only two crewmen who escaped death or immediate capture on the ground when his plane was shot down near Lesparre, France, in 1943.

After fleeing the wreck, Arthur approached an isolated farmhouse, and its owners hastily took him in. Fortunately, his hosts had a tight connection to the French Resistance group Morhange and its founder, Marcel Taillandier, who arranged for Arthur's transfers among safe houses in southern France, shielding him from the Gestapo.

Based on recently declassified material, exclusive personal interviews, and extensive research into the French Resistance, The Lost Airman tells the tense and riveting story of Arthur's hair-raising journey to freedom - a true story of endurance, perseverance, and escape during World War II.
