After being shot down over France, Russell Hilding a B-17 pilot during WWII should’ve ended up in a P.O.W. camp run by the Luftwaffe, but instead, he was sent to the Buchenwald Concentration Camp.

After being shot down over France, Russell Hilding a B-17 pilot during WWII should’ve ended up in a P.O.W. camp run by the Luftwaffe, but instead, he was sent to the Buchenwald Concentration Camp. There, he joined P-38 pilot Joe Moser and 170 other Allied airmen in the most tenuous P.O.W. experience of the ETO. Prior to his passing in Nov. 2021, Russell held the distinction of being the “last living American airman” who was imprisoned in Buchenwald. The page-turning momentum of Lightning Down is like that of a thriller, but the stories of imprisoned and brutalized airmen are true and told in unforgettable detail, led by the distinctly American voice of Joe Moser, who prays every day to be reunited with his family. Lightning Down is a can’t-put-it-down inspiring saga of brave men confronting great evil and great odds against survival. Book features a bookplate signed by Russell Hilding. Hardbound, approx. 310 pages.
