33 Months As A POW In Stalag Luft III:
A WWII Airman Tells His Story
by Albert P Clark
An American World War II prisoner tells his story of the Great Escape.
Many fascinating stories of the Great Escape have been told since the end of World War II. Not until now has the story of General Albert P Clark, the first combat personnel captured in US uniform by the Germans, been told. In his 33 months in the infamous prisoner of war camp Stalag Luft III, General Clark was involved in and responsible for directing escape work among American prisoners. His tale of courage and perseverance is accentuated by the stark photographs he took from the inside with a pinhole camera.

Baby Boomerang (2009)
Starring: Mark W. Arnett, Charles W. Arnett
Director: Mark W. Arnett
Producer: Mark W. Arnett
2nd Lt Charles Arnett, pilot of the Arnett Crew 717, was shot down on 19 May 44 on the 492nd's Mission 05 to Brunswick, Germany, while flying the B-24 Boomerang. After the war, Charles went on to spawn seven baby boomers, the last of whom was Mark. Thus, the title of this film.
Mark Arnett starts "Baby Boomerang" with a simple goal: Make a documentary about World War II for people, like himself, who don't like documentaries.
He wants to tell the story of his father's World War II experience to the spoiled, pretentious, and ungrateful baby boomer generation that he belongs to. So, he begins the film in a way that he is sure baby boomers can relate to: he makes the film about himself.
The trailer says it all . . .
