One-Mission Man

After enlisting in the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1942 and training diligently for months as a bombardier, David Ririe spent only one day in combat. On his first—and last—mission, his plane was shot down. Crash landing on a military reserve outside Rostock, Germany, he was seized by soldiers who sent him to Stalag Luft 1, an isolated prisoner of war camp along the Baltic coast. For the next 13 months, Ririe struggled to survive Nazi brutality and starvation, repeatedly digging tunnels unsuccessfully to escape. In One-Mission Man, Ririe speaks with honesty and eloquence about his family, daily life in the camp and the harrowing chaos that followed liberation by the Russians. One-Mission Man is an inspiring, powerful, deeply personal story about one man’s survival during the world’s most brutal war.
