257 pages. Author's inscription upon title page. Biography of a survivor of World War II. "As I bailed out of the side of the aircraft, I counted to five to make sure I was clear of the plane. Then I pulled the ripcord and in about two seconds there was a terrific slap on both sides of my face as the shoot straps hit me. At the same time, there was a terrific jolt as the shoot slowed my descent.... before I knew anything else, I crashed through some trees and came to a halt in pitch darkness.... I finally realized that my feet were not on the ground." Decent reading copy.
