Distant Prayer: Miracles of the 49th Combat Mission

by Joseph Banks


Quick Overview

True story of WW II pilot Joseph Banks who survived the downing of his plane and life as a prisoner of war prior to a miraculous escape. Inspirational story of one man's faith, courage and prayer during overwhelming adversity.


"Initially, air-service crews were required to complete twenty-five missions before returning to the United States. By the time we arrived, the number of missions had increased to fifty. The mortality rate was so high that they just couldn't bring in new crews fast enough. . . . Fifty missions is an unbelievable number, and there was such a high injury and kill rate that it almost wasn't worth calculating." This is the remarkable true story of Joseph Banks, a young Latter-day Saint and lone survivor of his plane that was downed during a dangerous bombing run over Germany on his 49th mission; one mission away from going home. A prisoner of war, Joseph overcame impossible odds to mount a miraculous escape and return safely to his wife and young son. This inspirational story of one man's faith, prayer, and unwavering courage in the face of overwhelming adversity will change the lives of those who read it. A Distant Prayer is a book you will want to share with your friends and loved ones, and is an experience not to be missed. Size 8.4 x 5.8 x 0.7 inches
