Hello,

I think the book you are looking for might be The Forgotten 500: The Untold Story of the Men Who Risked All For the Greatest Rescue Mission of WWII by Gregory A. Freeman. The description of the book is as follows: 

In 1944 the OSS set out to recover more than 500 downed airmen trapped behind enemy lines in Yugoslavia. Classified for over half a century for political reasons, the full account of this unforgettable story of loyalty, self-sacrifice, and bravery is now being told for the first time.

OPL does not have a copy of this title at this time.  In this case you may want to consider Inter-Library Loan where we call out to libraries around the country or world to arrange for a short-term loan to you through us. ILL service comes with a postage cost, but it's often a good option for an older book you want to read but don't necessarily want to buy. If you're interested in pursuing ILL, you can follow the link above (which will take you to our ILL page with instructions and to the WorldCat page, where you can look up and request the title).  Alternatively, you can stop in at your local library or call 402-444-4857.

If this is not the title, please let me know and I will keep searching!

Thank you for using AskOPL,
