Booklist Reviews 2007 June #1

Updating a small-press title called Beyond the Dikes (2000), this offering is the only autobiography in the ongoing Sterling Point history series. In his twenties during the events recounted here, DeMallie details the aftermath of a mission to Nazi Germany, when the bomber pilot was forced to jump from his damaged B-17 into occupied Holland. There, he was aided by the Dutch Resistance, captured by the SS, and held in a German POW camp. DeMallie spends too long on the opening logistics of training and shipping out, and his occasional, dated slang (Gee) may initially stall readers. All the same, once that crippled engine starts shedding oil in a steady oozing of black blood, the adventure picks up significantly, delivering some unforgettable episodes of wartime drama and tragedy—including the horrific plunge of a crewmate whose parachute failed. A heartfelt endnote concludes. Offer this Greatest Generation memoir to readers considering military service, and they will appreciate both the candidly portrayed dangers and the clear sense of purpose DeMallie found in his Air Force role.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2007 Fall

In this updated edition (originally [cf2]Beyond the Dikes[cf1]), DeMallie tells his war story: shot down in December 1944, he eluded capture and found temporary refuge with Dutch Resistance fighters until the Germans caught up with him, imprisoning him for the remainder of the war. The workmanlike writing is sometimes trite, but DeMallie tells it straight and with a well-judged amount of detail. Copyright 2007 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

In Behind Enemy Lines: A Young Pilot's Story, author H.R. Demallie tells his own story of leaving the University of Michigan, after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, to train as a pilot. He winds up flying a B-17 from England to Germany and bombing the Nazis, only to be shot down over Holland, hidden for a time by Dutch resistors, then discovered and taken as a German POW (the allies eventually liberated him).
