First Line Fridays - 11/11/16 - Behind Nazi Lines

Friday, November 11, 2016

You know what day it is! FRIDAY!!! Which means it is time to grab the book that you are the closest too and post your First Line!

In honor of Veterans Day today I am sharing my first line from a book (that I have yet to read) about the true story of an incredible man's quest to save 149 World War II POWs.

But first, I wanted to share with you this video that never ceases to bring tears to my eyes and thankfulness to my heart.

Now for my first line...

Thursday, 23 November 1944, Thanksgiving Day,
94th Infantry Division Headquarters, Ch√Ęteaubriant, France
Andy Hodges had been handed a job no one else dared to accept--a direct order from Major General Harry J. Malony, commander of the 94th Infantry Division, headquartered in Ch√Ęteaubriant, France.

From the Back of the Book
In 1944, hundreds of Allied soldiers were trapped in POW camps in occupied France. The odds of their survival were long. The odds of escaping, even longer. But one-man had the courage to fight the odds . . .

Post your First Line below and head over to see what First Lines my lovely friends have today!
