Recap

In Africa in 1943, Air Force Captain James Embry wakes up next to King Nine, a medium bomber that has crashed in the Tunisian desert. He vaguely recalls the bomber going off-course after a hit and crashing in the desert. However, he can't find any of the other crew even though he's sure they were all aboard when the bomber crashed. He calls out for the crew but gets no answer. He tries to piece together what happened in the crash and concludes that he was thrown clear during the crash and was knocked out. He assumes the others started walking to civilization, but can't figure out why they didn't take him...
