On January 11, 1945, my father, Major Donald J. Humphrey, directed his B-29 Superfortress toward Singapore Island. He and his crew did not know then that their training had not prepared them to face dangers that they would soon encounter.
As soon as they successfully bombed their target and navigated back to India’s home base, Japanese Zeros attacked their mighty aircraft. The Japanese Zeros brought their B-29 down by shooting off one of its wings and sending the plane on a death spiral toward the dangerous Malayan jungle. Luckily my father and some of his crewmates parachuted out and survived the crash. However, their training had not prepared them to face the dangers that awaited them in the Asian jungle.
When they landed, my father and some of his crewmates found themselves lost in the middle of a Japanese occupied territory. With vicious crocodiles, crippling malaria, and the venomous snakes threatening their presence in the jungle, they had to fight for their lives with every passing second. They soon contacted the Malayan resistance fighters, but being foreigners, they could not fully trust the Chinese Army as their benefactors. They were always afraid that the Communist Chinese were leading them into more danger.
In this harrowing account based on real-life events, I share the intriguing story of my father’s near-death experience in the Malayan jungle. This intensely personal story will take you inside the mind of my dad, a man who struggled to survive as he fought for his country, the United States of America.
The story will bring you, the reader, direct to some of the Second World War events so you can truly relive the harrowing circumstances some of the soldiers had to go through. Besides fighting with weapons, like trained soldiers, my father and crewmates survived through terrifying scenarios like the crocodile-infested swamps and a gruesome trek in the jungle. The Army Air Force did not train and prepare my father, a pilot, for these scenarios.
The story is an intriguing tale of the eight months my father and his crewmates spent in the Malayan jungle as they fought to overcome near-death experiences they did not expect. The memoir will tell how courageous my father and his crewmates were as they faced the jungle’s terrifying circumstances, plus the inhabitants of the jungle.
