From the Inside Flap

Army Air Corps 2nd Lieutenant Frank Pratt was captured by the Germans when his B-24 was shot down over Poland on September 13, 1944. He spent the next eight months as a prisoner of war in Stalag Luft I near Barth, Germany. While there, he kept journals that he wrote mostly on the back of cigarette packets from the Red Cross parcels. Together, his three “cigarette diaries” tell the story of day-to-day life of a prisoner of war in Germany in the closing months of WWII. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Frank J. Pratt was born on October 24, 1915 in the then-thriving town of Blanchard, Washington, seventy-five miles north of Seattle. At the onset of WWII, he joined the Army Air Corps as an officer candidate. After graduating as a bombardier with the rank of 2nd Lieutenant, he was assigned to the European theatre. On September 13, 1944, seven missions away from completing his tour of duty, his B-24 was shot down over southern Poland. He was captured by the Germans and spent the next eight months in a prison camp, where he recorded his life in camp on empty cigarette packs. Upon release in the summer of 1945, Frank returned home to Blanchard where he bought into a co-operative mill, retiring in 1979. The story might have ended there, but in 1994, Frank and three members of his crew were presented with the Polish Home Army Cross. Newsweek heard of Frank’s story and produced a three-part video interview that ran on the Newsweek website, along with excerpts from his diary. He passed away in 2008, leaving his diaries with his daughter Rebecca Pratt. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
