by Francis Gary Powers, Jr. & Douglas E. Campbell

For the past twenty-five years, Francis Gary Powers, Jr., has lectured on, taught, and researched the Cold War; in particular the U-2 Incident of May 1, 1960, in which his father was shot down while flying a CIA U-2 spy plane over the former Soviet Union. Gary started data entering his father’s journal in 1996. Over the next twenty years he found his dad’s letters to and from family while incarcerated, family photos sent to him in prison, and other correspondence that provides the reader with a unique firsthand account of the U-2 Incident, shoot down, imprisonment, and events that led up to his father’s exchange for Soviet Spy Rudolph Abel in 1962.

440 pages, softcover, The Cold War Museum, 2017.
