When Kiwi airman John Sanderson was shot down over Laines-aux-Bois in May 1944, an ordinary French family chose to help. Tragically, a local doctor called in to treat his wounds betrayed them to the Gestapo. This absorbing, illustrated account presents a poignant and compelling view of our humanity, and our history.
