In 1944, as World War II is raging across Europe, fifteen-year-old Jack Raab dreams of being a hero. Leaving New York City, his family, and his boyhood behind, Jack uses a false I.D. and lies his way into the U.S. Air Force.From their base in England, he and his crew fly twenty-four treacherous bombing missions over occupied Europe. The war is almost over and Hitler near defeat when they fly their last mission -- a mission destined for disaster. Shot down far behind enemy lines, Jack is taken prisoner and sent to a German POW camp, where his experiences are more terrifying than anything he'd ever imagined.In 1944, Jack Raab, a 15-year-old who dreams of being a hero, lies his way into the U.S. Air Force.

Hitler is near defeat, when Jack is shot down behind enemy lines and taken to a German POW camp.
Annotation:
Fifteen and Jewish, American Jack Raab wants to do anything he can to stop Hitler killing the Jews. Knowing he's too young to join the Air Force, Jack signs up using his older brother's birth certificate. At last his dream of revenge on Hitler is realized: he is in the air, bombing Berlin. But soon he realizes what he is really doing, especially after he sees his whole crew killed and he is captured by the Germans. Harry Mazer based this great young-adult classic novel on his own experiences as a very young airman in World War II.
