“The San Bernardino County Sun”, (San Bernardino, California), 15 Apr 1966, page 26</ref> notes:
“… Fowler's assignment with OSS was to drop by parachute behind the Nazi lines and join with the Yugoslav partisan forces led by one Joseph Broz. Broz is better known today as Marshal Tito, Yugoslavia's head of state.
Fowler jumped into the middle of trouble. Tito was having a tough time then with liaison problems with the Allies.
Randolph Churchill was also there to help solve those problems. Fowler’s job was to make a motion picture record of the Yugoslav guerrilla war and get it out to the free world.
Fowler shot the film and got it aboard a courier plane, giving the first films of Tito to the world. But Perry didn't make it. As he recalled, there was just one ambush too many.
He had the distinction of talking his way out from in front of a firing squad.
Fowler actually shouted down the commander of the executioners, claiming that he was not a spy. He had the foresight to destroy his OSS credentials before his capture.
He demanded treatment as a legitimate prisoner of war and finally got it after endless months of questioning by the Gestapo.
Liberated, he got home just in time for VE Day….”
