Last Known Activity
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.

World War II/European-African-Middle Eastern Theater/Rhineland Campaign (1944-45)
Start Year
End Year

Attempting to outflank the Siegfried Line, the Allies tried an airborne attack on Holland on 17 September 1944. But the operation failed, and the enemy was able to strengthen his defensive line from Holland to Switzerland. Little progress was made on the ground, but the aerial attacks on strategic targets continued. Then, having regained the initiative after defeating a German offensive in the Ardennes in December 1944, the Allies drove through to the Rhine, establishing a bridgehead across the river at Remagen.
