The narrator shouts the confused outbursts of the crew as their burning, disintegrating B-17 plummets to earth, still taking German fire. Patrick Lawlor brings the author’s comrades to life as if he had been there. Lawlor’s scratchy, young voice recounts LaMore’s experiences as a downed Texas WWII pilot who finds himself in the French Resistance, several German POW camps (one of which he escapes from through barbed wire), and finally, for several months, in the Russian army. Lawlor’s French, German, Polish, and Russian accents sound almost the same, but who cares? When LaMore meets a beautiful Russian soldier named Rose, love and lust come into his life, providing the emotion and tears that turn a wartime memoir into a powerful story.
