When Henry Forester is shot down during a bombing run over France, the World War II pilot finds himself trapped behind enemy lines. In constant danger of discovery by German soldiers, Henry begins a remarkable journey to freedom. Relying on the kindness of strangers, Henry moves from town to town--traveling by moonlight, never asking questions, or even the names of the people who help him along the way. Through his journey, Henry gains an understanding of the French and their struggle; and of his own place in a war that will change the face of Europe forever.

This is a fantastic book! I really want to get it and the sequal too

I could hardly put this book down! As a fan of WW2 novels/nonfiction/movies, this didn't disappoint! The underground network and the people who worked in it should be lauded as well as the soldiers. They were just as brave, and they don't get as much glory.

19 year old Henry grows up in a terrifying way when his plane is shot down. He spends the next few months avoiding capture and being assisted by the brave French underground. A thriller and tear jerker at the same time. So poignant.
