Twin Destinies
by Delbert Forsberg and Delmer Forsberg and C. M. Parmenter




Overview -
A true WWII account of twin brother fighter pilots Delbert and Delmer Forsberg, who along with their crews were shot down behind enemy lines while flying B-24 Liberator Bombers. With the help of Yugoslavian Partisans, Delbert and his crew would make a perilous escape hiking rugged mountains at night and remain hidden during the day, at times being so close to the enemy he could have touched them. Delmer and all but one of his crew would be captured by the Germans becoming Prisoners of War and forcibly marched from Stalag to Stalag often in below freezing conditions. At one point, Hitler would give orders for the prisoners to be marched to their final destination in dead of winter without benefit of shoes or belts to prevent their escape. Always on the verge of starvation, Delmer tells about daily survival inside prison camps and how innovative humans can be in such dire circumstances. Neither twin would know the fate of the other until after the war ended.
