THE FREEDOM LINE: The Brave Men and Women Who Rescued Allied Airmen from the Nazis During WWII

Peter Eisner, Author . Morrow $26.95 (340p) ISBN 978-0-06-009663-2

Chronicling a group of young resistance fighters from Spain, France and Belgium, Washington Post deputy foreign editor Eisner brings to life "the Comet Line" they formed to lead Allied troops caught in the Basque region of Spain to safety. Eisner, whose wife is Basque, has spent a great deal of time in the area, and that familiarity permeates this taut account of trust and bravery among civilians and military men. (On sale Apr. 6)
