Hear the story of Operation Halyard in 1944, the largest rescue ever of downed American airmen. More than 500 U.S. airmen were rescued, along with some from other countries, all right under the noses of the Germans, and mostly in broad daylight. The mission was a complete success - the kind that should have been trumpeted in news reels and on the front page. Freeman, author of "The Forgotten 500: The Untold Story of the Men Who Risked All for the Greatest Rescue Mission of World War II," will sign books following the lecture.
