Warren native’s book recounts WWII escape

October 9, 2013
The Times Observer

The latest World War II book from Warren native Timothy M. Gay (WAHS '72) tells the true story about how American nurses and medics were rescued from Nazi-held Albania in the winter of 1943-44. SAVAGE WILL: The Daring Escape of Americans Trapped Behind Nazi Lines (NAL-Random House Penguin) recounts how a 26-person medical team - half of them female nurses - plus an air crew of four on a flight from Sicily to Italy to pick up wounded Allied soldiers got caught in a violent storm. After being hit by enemy antiaircraft fire, their transport plane was forced to crash-land in German-occupied Albania.
