I met Rudy Froeschle in Fargo, ND, though, while he’d spent most of his life in ND, At that time he was living in Fort Meyers FL.

Rudy offered to put on a program for a group of pilots in Fargo. Rudy was a B-17 pilot in the Army Air Corps in WW II, though he said he wasn’t a very good B-17 pilot….seems he was shot down on his second combat mission. But Rudy’s presentation was actually the role he played as a technical advisor for the movie “The Great Escape”. You see, after he was shot down, he was incarcerated in Stag Luft III.

He doesn’t talk about the movie in this interview, which was done for a POW history group. But, Rudy was a great story teller. Wait till you have a full hour to watch this….you won’t want to interrupt it.

Thanks for posting that Mike! Just watched it. He's a good story teller and I chuckled several times.
