This book and the story it tells are just amazing. While it is a book about WW2 and it doesn't doesn't pull punches about the horrors, it is not so much a good guys vs. bad guys story as it is a story about two men whose lives intersected in the sky over Germany, how they survived the war, and how they found each other much later. It is a book for anyone interested in the war or in flying, but even more, it is a powerful study of human spirit.
Loved the true stories and adventures in this book and learned a lot about the US and German WWII Airforces; it reminded me a bit of "Unbroken: A WWII Story...". The narrator was PERFECT too! Recommended it to all my friends :-).
What an amazing book. The book will bring tears to your eyes in the first section of simply setting up the story. It gives us as bit of kindness from a nasty war in which both sides sacrificed so much. This is a story of good men asked to defend their Country and they choose to do it with honor and dignity. This story happens early in the war and after you hear what both parties lived through and experienced, it is a miracle in itself that both parties lived to tell their stories. War is Hell and this amazing story came from its deepest destruction. Hats off to Adam Makos for giving us their story. For all our veterans and our active military and families, I can only tell you Thank You for your service to this Nation. I am forever grateful.
Look for good even in your enemies
sure, I think it would make a great movie
It's an unbelievable story where you can see God's hand involved with many lives
I can't express how much this story changed my perspective about Germany in WW2. Thank you for writing this book.
A Higher Call should be required reading for every senior in high school along with discussion. Every person should read this book. True honor and love is shown through the pages of this book. Human beings can be remarkable, even in the midst of evil times . I would normally not choose a book of this type; however, I am grateful that I listened . I loved it and the
narrator was excellent. Thank you audible!
This book is absolutely amazing! It is very captivating and I would recommend this story to anyone in the military or who is interested in history or the military. Being a member of the Air Force this book hits closer to home and made me cry several times. This book is more than just a book, it is the living accounts of true acts of chivalry of a greater generation during a terrible time.
