This story captures the joy of flying, the excitement of training as a bomber pilot - and the horror of being shot down and captured in World War II. Worse was to come: airmen were handcuffed every day in their prison camp as punishment for the damage they inflicted on Germany. Jack's survival in the camp, and on the gruelling march to freedom, are an inspiring read, told with typical Kiwi humour and modesty.
About the Author
Jack Hardie, now in his 90s, joined up in the Second World War and trained as a pilot in the South Island and England. After the war he was a successful farmer. Now living in Motueka, he still goes whitebaiting on the West Coast for a few weeks each year. Until recently he made a parachute jump each January in memory of his crew who died when their plane crashed over German-occupied Holland and he became a prisoner of war.
