Fallen Fortress by Tom Bartlett:

After being shot down on April 27, 1944, Cornell evaded the enemy with the help of the Belgium & French People. He was involved in some underground work to cause trouble to the German Soldiers. He later was repatrioted back to England on September 6, 1944. He was given some time off and tried hard to join the forces in the Pacific Theater but was denied. Finally he was able to rejoin the 100 Bomb Group and was assigned to the 351 Bomb Squadron. He stayed in the service and flew B-47s in SAC for 10 years. He retired in 1960.
