Sample text

When there was less snow in the mountain passes, he would be able to try to escape into Spain. In the meantime, however, he would have to live and work with the 36 CHUCK YEAGER Maquis. From that point on, he would have to follow in the footsteps of the Maquis. The French freedom fighters would hide by day and attack at night—the Maquis were famous for sabotaging German supply routes. They ambushed small motorized convoys, destroyed whole sections of railroad track, and blew up trains that were carrying German military equipment and munitions.

In March, Chuck was taken on a mission into town, a mission that he knew could turn out to be quite dangerous. The French towns were overrun with Vichy conspirators and German soldiers. Neither a French Resistance member nor a downed American pilot would ever want to run into members of either the German military or the Vichy government—torture and death were very real possible outcomes of such an encounter. But before reaching town, Chuck was met by a van and he was ordered to get inside. It was the perfect time to attempt to travel across the Pyrenees and escape into Spain, but he had to leave immediately.

Eisenhower told the two men that he would have to contact the War Department, but he would see what he could do. Sometime later, Chuck got the news he was waiting to hear: the War Department had decided to leave the matter up to General Eisenhower. General Eisenhower sent word to Chuck. The fighter pilot would be allowed to fly combat missions again. Chuck was being allowed to stay and fight again with the 363rd. On October 12, 1944, Chuck Yeager became an ace pilot with five confirmed victories.
