Mac parachuted to safety and was plucked from the water - only to find himself on the wrong end of a German rifle pointing straight at his head. Mac's father, Lt. Col. Vaughn MacArthur, made it his personal mission to find him. An inspiring, harrowing, and unforgettable chronicle of love of family and love of country, Lightning Sky is a timeless testament to extraordinary lives in extraordinary times.
