Summary
Arthur Meyerowitz was on his second air mission over France when he was shot down in 1943. After fleeing the wreck, Meyerowitz knocked on the door of an isolated farmhouse, whose owners hastily took him in. Fortunately, his hosts not only despised the Nazis but had a tight connection to the French resistance group Morhange and its founder, Marcel Taillandier. Meyerowitz and Taillandier formed an improbable bond as the resistance leader arranged for Meyerowitz's transfers among safe houses in southern France, shielding him from the Gestapo. Based on recently declassified material, exclusive personal interviews and extensive research into the French Resistance, this book tells the tense and riveting story of Meyerowitz's trying months in Toulouse
