I like the perspective of the German side and that not all Germans were Nazi's but dedicated soldiers.
My favorite so far has been Unbroken and this story was close.
Unbroken was more extensive but this centered on the character of people (German Pilots) who operated by different code (at least those in the story). A good story of maintaining integrity through difficult situations.
I enjoyed his pace and tone a well executed performance.
As a pilot I was moved in several parts especially during the flights. Without giving away anything I was very moved at the end.
This book was right up my alley, WWII, perseverance, integrity, honor, the flying was a bonus.
Winning requires trust.
Joe, what a lot for a young man to endure I admire his spirit and his ability to grow, very inspiring, the men from this era are truly special.
I listened to Unbroken and this was just as good. Herrmann is my favorite I look for books that he narrates.
The beauty of true teamwork gives more to a man than just a victory!
The book was well written and performed the story could be used as material for a college course or church sermon series. I was impressed by its depth.
Louie by far.You had to admire both his physical and mental fortitude under such adverse circumstances.
His tone was great nothing was ever overdone.
I will say there were times my heart sank and I was moved deeply by both the brutality and the camaraderie.
As a runner I would listen to Unbroken as I ran, on days when I should have rested I ran just so I could hear this story, one that I will never forget.
