On October 6, 1944, twenty-year-old Army Air Corps Second Lieutenant David "Mac" Warren MacArthur was on a strafing mission over Greece when his P-38 Lightning was struck over the Adriatic Sea. Catptured by the Germans, he spent the duration of the war shuttled from camp to camp. Meanwhile, his father, Lieutenant Colonel Vaughn MacArthur, a chaplain with the 8th Armored Division of Patton's Third Army, never stopped searching for his son. In May, 1945 he finally found him at Stalag VII-A in Moosburg, Germany--Adapted from jacket flap.
