Behind Enemy Lines: The Escape of Robert Grimes
Robert Grimes, a US Army Air Force pilot, was just 20 years old when his B-17 bomber was shot down over German-occupied territory. Separated from the rest of his squadron, and wounded in the leg by machine-gun fire, Lt. Grimes found himself leaning on the members of the Comet Line, a civilian escape organization. Behind Enemy Lines is the gripping true story of Lt. Robert Grimes' race to evade capture by Nazi soldiers.
Opening and closing with a brief chapter of text, the body of Behind Enemy Lines is in the form of action-packed graphics, making the story more accessible for reluctant readers. Behind Enemy Lines is a tribute to those heroes who persevered in the face of adversity. Behind Enemy Lines is ideal for readers ages 9 to 12.
