As this amazing story has (unfortunately) been kept out of the public eye for so long, the fates of the people involved are unknown. This adds suspense to an already fascinating story. Add the implications of skewed information to bolster the "politically correct" side of the conflict in Yugoslavia during WWII, and one gains new insight into how what we learn today about conflicts may also be skewed.
This is a very good story. A compelling piece of WWII history and the eastern European politics of that era that show through today.
My issue is the narrator sounds really young. The really strong characters and story lose something when told via a 12 year old. With Audiobooks the Narrator is key to a good "read", this one misses. The great story carries it, so its fine but could have been much better.
This is one of the most interesting audio books I have listened too. It was a history that I had never heard of until now. It explained a lot of our modern history of today. It was deeply moving. If you love history this book is for you.
Anyone who claims to be interested in US World War 2 or Cold War history should listen to this or read it. It is not only a remarkable story of determination, but also provides an interesting retrospective on some of the mistakes the US made immediately following World War 2. It is interesting to speculate how things could have been different, and discouraging when you realize that many have not learned from these mistakes.
Very interesting providing a very important historical perspective and understanding on the Balkans from WWII to current and how the U.S. and Britan sold out the freedom loving people of that area.
Didn't care much for the reader - his voice always sounded strained and screechy.
Interesting book that sheds light on a little known drama. It also highlights both the heroism and the fickleness of America and Great Britain in the rescue and willingness to back Tito despite evidence of his untrustworthiness. Slow to start, but engrossing and provides background for events of the recent past.
