Belgium … February 8, 1944 … Shot Down and Alive

For the first time, the full and complete story of the B-17 Flying Fortress Susan Ruth is shared in unbelievable detail. Author Steve Snyder’s story of his father, Lieutenant Howard Snyder, and the Susan Ruth crew, provides in-depth details about many aspects of World War II few understand or know about including the:

• separation for young families as men went off to war;
• training before heading to foreign soil;
• military combat operations;
• underground and resistance and what Lt. Snyder did when he joined it;
• German atrocities toward captured crew and civilians;
• behind-the-scenes stories of the Belgium civilians who risked all to save American flyers who were in the air one moment, spiraling down in flames the next;
• creation and dedication of the monument to the Susan Ruth and its crew located in Macquenoise, Belgium in 1989

Shot Down was created from the vast number of letters and journals of Howard Snyder; diaries of men and women on the ground who rescued, sheltered and hid the crew; and interviews conducted by historians. Centered around the 306th Bomb Group in Thurleigh, England, it is informative, insightful and captivating.

For most, 70 years is a long time ago. World War II fades in importance as each year goes by. Shot Down moves history out of the footnotes into reality, keeping the stories of real people alive as they experience being shot down. You are there, almost holding your breath as Lt. Snyder gets his crew out of his B-17 when bailing out over Nazi occupied Europe.

Aviation Memoir – Looking Out the Window, Talking to the Person Next to Me: My Life in Airplanes

Looking Out The Window Talking to the Person Next to MeLooking Out the Window, Talking to the Person Next to Me: My Life in Airplanes
By Eric Rush
Published: March 2014
ISBN: 978-0996012706
ASIN: B00JCZKQH6
Genre: Memoir, Aviation
Formats Available For Review: Print (only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers) and ebook

From his first flying lesson at the late age of 32 to retirement from an airline career, the author tells his story simply enough to keep those who know nothing of aviation amused and interested but with enough technical detail to satisfy pilots of any background. Moments of humor come mostly at the author’s expense.

The author was an easily bored jack-of-many-trades until he stumbled into a flying career. While working his way up the aviation ladder, he wrote articles for a flying magazine and a general-interest newspaper column. “Light & Dark,” a collection of his weekly columns,was published in 1999 and is still available through Amazon in print and for Kindle.
