Central Pennsylvania WWII Roundtable

Upcoming Speakers
Join us in making history come alive!

June 6, 2024

Steve Snyder- Mr. Snyder will discuss his book, Shot Down, which details his father Howard Snyder’s experiences as a pilot of a Flying Fortress B-17 heavy bomber in WWII, an aircraft that dropped more bombs than any other aircraft in the war. Howard’s plane flew with the 306th Bomber Group of the 8th Air Force. His B-17, the Susan Ruth, was shot down over the French/Belgium border on February 8, 1944. Steve, a graduate of UCLA, spent five years researching, among other things, the training, journey to England, and the harrowing experiences avoiding flak and German fighters flying bombing missions over occupied Europe. Howard also documents the crew’s plight following the destruction of their plane. This unique and fascinating subject will make for a very memorable presentation!
