The Belgian people would make it's called a hut out in the woods, and I think it's called champagne woods. And not all the Belgian people were, were were underground.
In this episode of AbbaDaddy House Girls Speak Out, Annette Smith and Myrna Thatcher interview Steve Snyder, author of the book SHOT DOWN. The book tells the true story of Snyder's father, pilot Howard Snyder, and his crew during World War II. The crew's plane was knocked out of the sky by German fighters over the French/Belgium border on February 8, 1944. This episode recounts the dramatic experiences of each member of the ten-man B-17 bomber crew after the attack.
Some men died, some were captured, and some evaded capture and were missing in action for months before making it back to England. The crew's individual stories and those of the courageous Belgian people who risked their lives to help them are recounted in vivid detail. Topics covered in this episode include World War II, B-17 bomber crew, missing in action, Belgian resistance, courageous acts, survival stories, military duty assignment, pilot training, love story, and legacy.
The sentiments evoked in this episode are inspiring, informative, hopeful, compassionate, and thought-provoking.
