This book is very well-written and narrated. I was very impressed with it and came away weighing things about it for many days. Though this is a non-fiction book, I just read about some similar things in the semi-autobiographical fiction book "Legion of Doom," by Sven Hassel. That book had many instances of German soldiers risking their lives to go have a swim with Russian soldiers who were also risking their lives- just to be human for an hour and forget the war. I'm very intrigued by stories like this and "A Higher Call," is a huge story like this.
Excellent writing in every respect.
This is the first Robertson Dean book I've listened to, he is excellent.
Yes - a wonderful book
I have read and listened to many historical books and accounts from WWII from all sides of the war. Few have come close this incredible story. It is a must read!
An amazing story of good men and great pilots in the the war torn skys of WWII. I love this book. So incredible.
One of the very best WWII books ever. Franz & Charlie are destined to meet. It occurs for ten minutes on the northwestern corner of Europe. The conditions are truly unbelievable. What happens, why it happens and the story of how a B-17 crew and a Me-109 ace get there will thrill and amaze the reader. Absolutely FIVE STARS.
In our current era where it is too easy to hate and assume the worst of people with whom our country is at odds, this is a reminder of choices we can make.
Not much more to say other than that was one of the most touching, moving books I have ever listened to. This better be made into a movie soon. More people need to hear this story.
