Bale out!

£28.00

Product description

A remarkable tale of a local airman, this book is based on a true story. It is a tribute to all those who the author describes as 'helpers' - the men and women of the Resistance, and other groups, who risked their lives, and sometimes paid the ultimate sacrifice, helping Allied servicemen to escape from German-occupied Europe. In 96 pages, Alfie Martin, of No 102 Squadron RAF, tells his story, of being shot down over the French-Belgian border in a Halifax and being guided through France, over the Pyrennees into Spain and back on to British territory at Gibraltar.
