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/Northern France Campaign (1944)
Start Year
End Year

(Northern France Campaign 25 July to 14 September 1944) Bombardment along a five-mile stretch of the German line enabled the Allies to break through on 25 July. While some armored forces drove southward into Brittany, others fanned out to the east and, overcoming a desperate counterattack, executed a pincers movement that trapped many Germans in a pocket at Falaise. The enemy fell back on the Siegfried Line, and by mid-September 1944 nearly all of France had been liberated. During these operations in France, while light and medium bombers and fighter-bomber aircraft of Ninth Air Force had been engaged in close support and interdictory operations, Eighth and Fifteenth Air Forces had continued their strategic bombing.
