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.

The Edge of Winter
by Luanne Rice
Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice is the daughter of Tom Rice, bombardier with the 492nd Bomb Group's Simon Crew R-03. He was transferred to the Testa Crew R-13, which was eventually transferred to the 44th Bomb Group.
On 16 Jan 45 the Testa Crew was shot down, but they were able to evade capture and were returned to duty. They continued flying until the very end of the war in Europe, including the very last mission flown by the 8th Air Force.
The EDGE OF WINTER, however, is not about Luanne's father. Like the 22 novels that preceeded this one, this novel is a work of fiction. But, Luanne has passed her father's war record onto the character of Damian O'Casey, combining composites of real 492nd veterans into the crewmates of the fictional bomber THE SILVER SHARK.
