Captured book cover


Two years after the United States entered the Second World War, 21-year-old college student James D. Pascoe was called up and served in the U. S. Army Air Force. The California native trained as a tail gunner, and was assigned to a B-26 Marauder. On his tenth mission, Pascoe was shot down over the French countryside. Aided by the RĂ©sistance, he was on the run for weeks until betrayed to the Nazis. Captured and imprisoned, he spent the remainder of the war as a POW.

This memoir, based on the daily journal Pascoe kept through the war, tells the story of an ordinary American - from civilian to POW and back again.
