A chapter from The Atavist No. 5: My Mother's Lover, a story by David Dobbs. On her deathbed, Dobbs's mother Evelyn Jane revealed a secret she'd kept for 60 years about the man she had truly loved, and lost. His name was Norman "Angus" Zahrt, a married World War II flight surgeon with whom she'd engaged in a secret love affair, just before he deployed to the Pacific and disappeared. Intrigued by his mother's hidden longing, Dobbs embarked on a reporter's quest to uncover Zahrt's fate, and that of his family. The story he returned with, available is an extraordinary tale of love, war, and how we confront the lost chances in our lives.
In this chapter, a pilot from Zahrt's squadron, the Air Force's Fourth Emergency Rescue, describes their mission in the Pacific, together with footage from the Second Emergency Rescue Squadron in action.
