On Duffy’s twelfth mission—11 January 1945 over Singapore—35-40 Zeke, Tony, and Oscar fighters riddled the B-29 Superfortress with machine gun fire, taking out two engines and setting it on fire. The Postville Express crew scrambled to jump free of the burning bomber and parachute to the Malayan jungle below. Duffy kept a daily diary of their 600-mile trek through thick jungle, swamps, swollen rivers, monsoon rains, jungle leeches, disease, death, the Chinese communist guerrillas, and the struggle to stay alive and out of the grasp of the Japanese enemy.
