Overview
Riveting and action-packed "Behind Nazi Lines"] shows how one brave American Red Cross volunteer negotiated the release of 149 Allied POWs. A great read. Marcus Brotherton, author of "Shifty's War"
In 1944, hundreds of Allied soldiers were trapped in the prisoner-of-war camps off the Atlantic coast of occupied France. Miraculously, local villagers smuggled a message from the camp to the Allied forces sparking a remarkable quest by an unlikely hero.
Excluded from military service due to a football injury, Andy Hodges joined the Red Cross and, in the fall of 1944, was tapped for what sounded like a suicide mission: a desperate attempt to aid the Allied POWs in Nazi-occupied France.
But Andy did far more than deliver much-needed supplies. By the end of the year, he had negotiated the release of an unprecedented 149 prisoners leaving no one behind. This is the true story of one man s selflessness, ingenuity, and victory in the face of impossible adversity.
