Wednesday, May 4th, 6:30 pm — Author visit with John Ambruster. Join us as we visit with John Armbruster about his new book, Tailspin. This story is a biography of Gene Moran, WWII POW, and a local hero.
Born in 1924, Eugene Paul Moran grew up on a small dairy farm located a few miles south of Soldiers Grove, Wisconsin. As soon as he turned eighteen in 1942, he volunteered for the Army Air Force and became a tail gunner on the Flying Fortress bomber.
In November 1943, in the skies over Nazi Germany, a wounded American tail gunner lay in the severed tail of his Flying Fortress bomber. His parachute shredded by enemy fire, Gene awaited the inevitable. He fell 4 miles without a parachute and survived, but his ordeal had just begun.
For the next seventeen months, Gene would endure some of the worst episodes of the American prisoner of war experience in occupied Europe, including the infamous “Hell Ship” and European Death March.
