Summary
A U.S. fighter pilot captured by the enemy. A father determined to rescue his son. One of the most remarkable and moving true stories of faith and perseverance to come out of World War II. On October 6, 1944, twenty-year-old Army Air Corps Second Lieutenant David "Mac" Warren MacArthur was on a strafing mission over Greece when his P-38 Lightning was struck over the Adriatic Sea. Catptured by the Germans, he spent the duration of the war shuttled from camp to camp. Meanwhile, his father, Lieutenant Colonel Vaughn MacArthur, a chaplain with the 8th Armored Division of Patton's Third Army, never stopped searching for his son. In May, 1945 he finally found him at Stalag VII-A in Moosburg, Germany--Adapted from jacket flap
