Luft VI and IV Narratives

The internet has produced a revolution in acess to information about the airmen who were prisoners of war in Europe. Combined with the Freedom of Information Act and the long overdue recognition of the trials and triumphs of "Kriegies", a great many of their individual stories have become available. We present here, a small sampling, with the hope that these stories will bolster a deeper understanding of this uniquely American experience. We remain open to adding more airmen to our list, as we are able.
