Wow --- what an exciting/excellent story about a little-know rescue of American airmen behind enemy lines during World War II --- was so informative to hear about the aircraft they flew, the training, the missions, the dangers, and some of their personal lives, especially the parts about Yugoslavian-Americans.
The book gets slightly bogged down in the middle with political history --- sounds like a text book but don’t let that deter you --- was a fascinating, extremely interesting story that I could not stop listening to --- I was sorry when it ended --- highly recommended.
I felt so lucky to have selected this one.
Masterfully written, this audiobook has everything going for it -- a rich history full of interesting characters and a sweeping saga using primary sources so I could hear the rhythm of the language.
Certainly not the narrator
No... 28 hours????
I must add my opinion that the narrator ruined the experience for me. If there were an alternative, even a decent abridged version, I would have gladly jumped ship!
This book is excellent --- very interesting with believable characters combined with a well-paced, thrilling plot. I could not stop listening --- I would highly recommend: you will not be disappointed.
A five-star experience listening to this book ---excellent, excellent, excellent --- worth the time, worth the credits. I could not wait to continue with the story --- highly recommended.
Although horribly brutal at time, I could not stop listening to this narrative --- an absolutely amazing story that makes one appreciate life in a peaceful country.
Don’t miss this one --- well told, well narrated ---
