Evader Summary

Evader: The Epic Story of the First British Airman to be Rescued by the Comete Escape Line in WWII by Derek Shuff

As air gunner Sergeant Jack Newton made his first bombing raid over Germany in 1941, his Wellington was hit by flak and the skipper was forced to make an emergency landing on a German-occupied Belgian airfield. Finding himself deep in enemy territory, Newton began an extraordinary 1,000-mile trek across Belgium and France, all the while barely a step ahead of the Nazis who were determined to catch him. Newton owed his life to the brave 23-year-old leader of the Comete Escape LineAndree de Jonghcodenamed Dedee. In this captivating true account, Derek Shuff unveils how Dedee delivered the Allied escapees to the safety of the British Embassy in San Sebastian and tells the amazing story of how the group made their way through the virtually impassable Pyrenees, all the while avoiding German patrols. Full of humor and drama, this is the story of Jack Newton's bid for freedom and the woman that put her life on the line to save him."
