Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

When Kiwi airman John Sanderson was shot down over Laines-aux-Bois in May 1944, an ordinary French family chose to help. Tragically, a local doctor called in to treat his wounds betrayed them to the Gestapo. This absorbing, illustrated account presents a poignant and compelling view of our humanity, and our history.

Includes correspondence between John Sanderson and Yvette Patris.

"The French civilians who chose to help Kiwis during the Second World War"--Cover.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 283-288).
