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.
I first learned of this story in the late 90's when I toured the 8th Air Force Museum outside of Savannah, GA. If you are a WWII history buff it is a MUST READ (or listen)! Restores one's faith in humanity.
The story is great, and so is the narrator. The perspective is unique. Highly recommended to anyone, and in particular to those interested in war history and World War 2 air war history.
This book is gripping from start to finish. Have me a new perspective from the German side of WWII. Highly recommend. Will probably listen again!
Exceptional on so many levels. This is more than a story of chivalry and compassion. This is a story of duty, honor, humanity and getting the job done. I found myself several times stoping and asking out loud, "would I have had the courage to do that…"?!
This is a must read/listen for anyone who enjoys war novels or books about the toughness, tenderness and kindness of the human soul. This needs to be made into a movie, but read the book first.
I've always known there have been great men in both sides of many conflicts but I couldn't imagine they could be as great as Franz Stigler. Thank you Franz for your example of charity.
At work I learn new things and have adventures while listening to many books and podcast.
I loved this book I am going to buy a hard copy and share to everyone I know. I love how he did most of the story from the German Ace a total different point of view.
