Steve Snyder has been to Europe and back researching his book, “Shot Down,” a nonfiction chronicle of events surrounding his father, Capt. Howard Snyder, and his crew after being shot down over enemy territory during World War II.
Snyder’s father was the pilot of a B-17 bomber, colloquially referred to as a “Flying Fortress.” After his plane crashed, he managed to evade capture by the Nazis and joined with Belgian freedom fighters, the Belgian Marquis, as well as the French White Army, to fight the German forces through guerrilla tactics. Both France and the Belgium were occupied by Nazi Germany during World War II.
Snyder’s father survived the war and Snyder believed the story was more fascinating than others he had heard about the war, so he put it to paper.
