    • Ray Matheny is an American hero in the truest sense of the word. His story is compelling both as a flight engineer on a B-17, and as a POW in Stalag 17. If you're into airplanes at all, you'll love the rich detail he provides about the B-17. His experiences on the "death march" are incredible, along with how they were eventually rescued.
