Bale Out!

Escaping Occupied France with the Resistance

Alfie Martin

A remarkable tale of a local airman, this book is based on a true story. It is a tribute to all those who the author describes as ‘helpers’ – the men and women of the Resistance, and other groups, who risked their lives, and sometimes paid the ultimate sacrifice, helping Allied servicemen to escape from German-occupied Europe. Alfie Martin, of No 102 Squadron RAF, tells his story, of being shot down over the French-Belgian border in a Halifax and being guided through France, over the Pyrennees into Spain and back on to British territory at Gibraltar. This book will be of interest to those with an interest in Second World War events, as well as those with an interest in RAF history, and the underground organisations of the time.
