The Shelburne Line was a World War II escape network operating in occupied France which returned 136 allied servicemen to England. The French Resistance located downed airmen and hid them from the Germans utilizing a series of safe-houses. Once a month-during the dark of the moon- the men were transported to the Brittany coast to meet a British Motor Gun Boat which would return them to England. Join Rick Feingold, as he recounts the story of how his father Lt. Louis Feingold, a B-17 U.S. Army Air Forces navigator, escaped Nazi capture.
