But when his plane is shot down on a mission behind enemy lines, Henry finds himself on a whole new battleground. Wounded, hungry, and afraid, he struggles toward freedom on foot, relying on the kindness and cunning of members of the French Resistance to reach the next town alive.

Yet even as Henry struggles for his own survival in a hostile counrty, he quickly grows to realize the great peril that threatens all of the French peole, and to admire the strength and determination of the freedom fighters who risk death to protect him.
