After months living and fighting with the French Resistance, Fahrenwald was captured by the Wehrmacht, interrogated as a spy, and interned in a POW camp-and made a daring escape just before his deportation to Germany. Nothing diminished this pilot's talent for spotting the ironic humor in even the most aggravating or dangerous situations - nor his penchant for extracting his own improvised and sometimes hilarious version of justice.
A suspenseful World War II account and an outrageously witty tale of daring and friendship, this book brings to vivid life the daily bravery, mischief, and intrigues of fighter pilots, Resistance fighters, and other Allies in the air and on the ground.

What made the experience of listening to Bailout Over Normandy the most enjoyable?
1) The events that happened. Nobody from today's World can possibly make up a story as thrilling as this one, let alone imagine that it actually happened to real people.
2) The language. I could listen to anything being talked about in such manner for hours.
3) The narrator - he has a fantastic voice, and great acting skills.
What other book might you compare Bailout Over Normandy to and why?
&quot;Thumult in the clouds&quot; by James Goodson
What about Corey M. Snow’s performance did you like?
His accent and voice acting skills. Too bad it's obvious he doesn't speak a word of French, and does an atrocious job of trying to pronounce the numerous French words in the story. 5 stars, nonetheless.

Overall very enjoyable. The narrator overdid the "southern/hillbilly" accent a bit I thought but on a book like this hard to know if it was in fact the author's real manner of speech. The story held my attention. Definitely a member of the greatest generation. Interesting to hear a first hand account of what went on and of the bravery of ordinary French peoples who find themselves in a very extraordinary situation.
