Minor Accident of War

Running time: 10'

“Minor Accident of War" is based on a true story written and narrated by the man who lived it – Edward Field, 95-year-old WWll veteran. In 1945, at 20 years old, Field was the navigator in the 8th Air Force during the war. On his 3rd mission over Germany, his plane lost all four engines after being hit by flak and crash landed in the North Sea. Hanging on to one of the two rafts in the freezing cold water, a decision was made that to this day has affected Field.
