Absolutely would recommend the book to a friend, an acquaintance and even a stranger. When written correctly, stories of real events surpass anything a novel can offer. Makos achieves, if not surpasses this hurdle. He does a fantastic job turning historic events into an engaging story of camaraderie, survival and honor on both sides of the conflict. Those who know little, or think they knew something about WWII will find out information they never knew before about how both sides felt and operated during the war. You will be surprised and amazed.
The story clearly demonstrates that not all Germans were Nazis, a common mis-conception that most people have about those who served in the German military. The pilots in particular were honorable men who fought for their country, their honor, for each other, and not for their insane leaders.
WWII as never before portrayed..

The most striking feature of this book, is the author's integration of history, politics, society, economics, science and personalities. Call it a totally
No. But he is by far the BEST reader I have listened too. The enthusiam with which he tells this story is his distinguishing feature. His enthusiam engages and holds you for a totally entertaining and informative experience. What could be dry topics are brought to interesting and anitmated life.
Oil and energy...the stories behind the story.
