Summary "The Mighty Eighth in WWII includes the stories of pilots who were downed in France and Holland. They traveled under the cover of night through the countryside, evading the Nazis who had seen their planes go down. The pilots found citizens willing to help and hide them, and they made their way through the underground networks of Europe in an effort to get back to England."--BOOK JACKET
