Film Assignment for April

Troops, your viewing assignment for April is to watch Shot Down: Howard Snyder and the B-17 Susan Ruth.

Shot Down is set within the framework of World War II in Europe and recounts the dramatic experiences of a ten man B-17 bomber crew after their plane, piloted by Howard Snyder, was knocked out of the sky by German fighters over the French/Belgian border on February 8, 1944.

Some men died. Some were captured and became prisoners of war. Some men evaded capture and were missing in action for months before making it back to England. Their individual stories and those of the courageous Belgian people who risked their lives to help them are all different and are all remarkable.

Much of this documentary is told from the aspect of Howard Snyder’s son, Steve Snyder.

Your duty is to watch the film, then email your thoughts and comments to me at denny@frontlinesoffreedom.com.  We’ll review it on the last show of the month.
