Escape from Behind Enemy Lines  (80th Anniversary of D-Day)

The Shelburne Line was a World War II escape network operating in occupied France which returned 136 allied servicemen to England in 1943-44. The French Resistance located downed airmen and hid them from the Germans utilizing a series of safe-houses. Once a month—during dark of the moon—the men were transported to the Brittany coast to meet a British motor gun boat which would return them to England. Join Rick Feingold, as he recounts the story of how his father, Lt. Louis Feingold, a B-17 U.S. Army Air Force navigator, escaped Nazi capture.
