Lt. Andrew D. Marshall, a pilot in a Negro fighter group of the Mediterranean Allied Air Force had his plane shot up by flak during a strafing mission over Greece before the Allied invasion. When he came down, all that was left of the plane was his engine and himself, but he only suffered some bruises and cuts. Greeks hid him from the Nazis, then directed him to the British forces when they parachuted into Greece. Here, Lt. Marshall tells an American pilot of the 51st Troop Carrier Wing of his harrowing experience. ca. October 1944. (National Archives photo no. 208-AA-102E-5)
