A German Jewish Pilot's WWII Revenge

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

In 1939, Peter Stevens, a German Jew, stole the identity of a dead man and enlisted in the British air force. He ended up flying 22 combat operation and bombing his German hometown before being captured by the Nazis. What followed were years of escape attempts, liberation, and work as a Cold War spy; then finally settling in Canada with his family. On Remembrance Day, Steve Paikin speaks with Marc H. Stevens about his father's experiences, the topic of his book, "Escape, Evasion and Revenge: The True Story of a German-Jewish RAF Pilot Who Bombed Berlin and Became a POW."
