The way the book was written made me feel like I was there experiencing the same thing that those two pilots experienced. Being a pilot myself I can understand the kind of things they lived. My hopes are that Adam Makos gets to make a movie from the book. But based on my experience with great books that are make into a movie that the book was better. Great experience!!!!!!!!
We listened to this in the car on a long trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. Surprisingly, even with a fair amount of historical detail, the story was captivating.
This book is so reminiscent of the good qualities that human beings can have even in the midst of war.
The influence both in the present time of the World War two conflict but especially years later when all the parties from both the Americans as well as Franz the German ace really put in perspective the impact of one human being on many people when he or she makes the right choice. My hats off to the author and The narrator who put life into this awesome story. I must admit I too shared some tears relating to the love and compassionate shown. One of the best books I've listened to in several years.
Interesting story, but gets sometimes gets bogged down with lots of details about airplanes. If you like lots of details about planes, you probably would give this five stars.
The full development of the story makes it so much more than an unbelievable emotional portrait of war. It gives simultaneous historical and personal insight into the forces and decisions of world war 2. A story worth reading direct from the hand of providence. Thank you, Adam Makos, for your love for our veteran forces!
