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.
What a way to look at this story. Two sides, 2 views. Great book. I could hardly put the book down. You just wanted to know what the next chapter was going to bring. I would recommend this book to any history buff.
This is not only a riveting account of World War II air combat from both sides in Europe, it is an examination of what it means and what it takes to be a person of conscience in a culture that places no value on conscience. Highly recommended.
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.
