The Shelburne Line was a World War II escape network operating in occupied France which returned 138 allied servicemen to England in 1943-1944.  The French Resistance located downed airmen and hid them from the Germans through 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 that would return them to England.  Presenter Rick Feingold recounts the story of how his father, Lt. Louis Feingold, a B-17 U.S. Army Air Force navigator, escaped Nazi capture.

Rick Feingold teaches The Air Force in World War II at Bergen Community College.
