The Final Flight of Maggie's Drawers: A Story of Survival, Evasion and Escape
Turner Publishing Company, 1998 - 168 sivua
Written by award-winning Canadian radio-journalist Ray E. Zink, this is the true story of Joe Maloney, a B-24 tail gunner during WWII. After training, Joe was attached to the 15th Air Force, 415th Squadron based in southern Italy. Joe partakes in countless missions until one fateful day in 1944 during a bombing run to Steyr, Autstria. Riddled with flak and bullets, Maggie's Drawers, his B-24, receives a fatal hit. Her crew was forced to bail out over Yugoslavia. The story unfolds as Joe's crewmates are reunited on the ground, and are led by Allied Partisans to the free-zone. This is a gripping story of American boys trapped behind enemy lines, and a heroic group of locals who risked their lives to save them.
